I see R&S they are limiting page views per day on their horse search facility, won't be long before Australia has no free online form services for individual horse records.

Given NZ, HK, USA, Singapore, India, Malaysia, Sth Africa and the UK all provide these facilities for free makes you wonder why Australia has gone the other way.

The debacle with the fees for use of the Australian Stud Book further highlights that the administrators of racing dont wish to forster the industry but are seeking possible minimal short term gains over extensive long term losses.

good point Gov,
                           many people just like to spend a bit of time researching breeding and horses form as an interest for no commercial gain short term. As interest grows these same people become involved in ownership of racehorses or breeders ect. They are cutting them off at the knees.  emthdown
A industry needs 1 website like the studbook with linked individual form and needs to provide it free.  emthup

Wouldn't that be grand Gallopers 8-)

Surely it couldn't cost that much to get up and running? And just have a couple of programmers to input all the data etc.

Its not the greatest search engine, but sky channel provides form of all horses since 1998.  An excellent search engine, if you want to find out who raced who.

This site has been difficult to enter recently.  Can't get in at the moment nor this morning after several attempts.  Was ok during the afternoon.

No joy today either.

My IP Address is being blocked from accessing their site, and I have absolutely no idea why  :what:

Does anyone have an email address I can contact to sort it out?

Cheers.

Cheers mate. Maybe Gary Crispe banned me following my criticism of Timeform Ratings   :biggrin:

Is there an IT support contact for the site? I don't want to bother those esteemed gentlemen with my trivial problems.
