LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 29, 2012) - A new site dedicated to delivering live horse racing results has launched in the UK.
The site can be found at http://www.horseracingresults.co.uk, and promises much for racing fans to look forward to, boasting user-friendly features and race coverage that have already attracted encouraging feedback from fans.
Visitors to the site are greeted by the latest racing news beneath the masthead, beneath which is a table of the latest live race results, which are updated as they happen. In bulletin form the table displays the first three horses placed, but lists the full number of runners in the bottom right corner while reserving the option to view the full race results. Selecting this link will open up the full results for that race: positions, race numbers, runners, jockeys and trainers. Beneath each runner there is a short race summary and course and prize information can be found above. To the left of this table are the details of the day's race meetings and a list of all of the courses covered by the site.
This wealth of information has proved most attractive to fans so far. The positive feedback has largely surrounded the site's encyclopedic coverage of race venues, with 66 tracks covered with direct links from the homepage, from Dundalk to Doncaster and Thirsk to Tipperary. This information covers everything from latest course news to weather and ground going.
The right-hand side of the homepage contains a calendar, through which browsers can access previous race results as far back as 2008. While this may seem like nothing more than a chance for race goers to reminisce over meetings past, it is a nod to the pure enthusiasts who follow horses keenly, or for fans who like to ensure they have the full history of horses and riders. With this calendar, those fans can certainly fill in any gaps in their records.
Such all-encompassing scope has already proved welcome news to racing fans, with early user feedback proving positive. Sporting commentators are likely to be just as enthusiastic as the site's resources become known amongst the racing community. While most major news sites cover every race meeting, they are often amongst deeper sports pages. The instant access to race results, track schedules and latest news opens up every facet of the sport to enthusiasts, amateurs and industry professionals.
The early positive feedback has already warranted the site's launch a success. With several peak dates left in the racing calendar the mid-summer pitch has been an ideal platform from which to build next year's racing interest. Referencing the horse racing results past and present during peak season is likely to ensure that these early successes will project future progress.
