28th November 2017: We apologise for the current issue with the fast results page, and we are working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
Today’s Horse Racing Results
Above are all the horse racing results for the UK and Ireland, sorted in time order. We receive our results within a couple of minutes of the race finishing, and before the official result has actually been announced. Results will therefore initial show as “Result”, with this text changing to “Weighed In” when the finishing positions have been confirmed and made official. This means that the jockeys from the race have been weighed on the scales at the course, and it has been confirmed that they were carrying the correct amount of weight which they were assigned prior to the race.
There may also be “Steward’s Enquiries” between the “Result” stage and the “Weighed In” stage. These occur when the stewards watching the race judge that rules have been broken; often, this is due to one horse interfering with another horse in the race unfairly. The stewards have the ability to disqualify or demote a horse, or to swap finishing positions around. For that reason, if you have backed a horse which is shown as finishing in second or even third in the initial racing results, make sure to hold on to the betting slip until the enquiry is finished, just in case.
Fast Results Explained
Our fast results are laid out to make them as easy and simple to understand as possible. We sort by the time the race has finished, so the latest racing results are at the top of the list, and the earliest are at the bottom of the list. Next to the time of the race is the course the race was run at.
We call this the “Fast Results” page because, not only are the results fast, but we only list the horses which finished in the “official places” – that is, the positions which bookmakers will generally pay out as the Each Way places under the normal rules of racing. That means our racing results may show just one horse for one race, but four horses for the next race. To see the full result for the race, click on the “Full Result” button.
How To Understand Racing Results
As explained above, our results are purposefully kept simple and listed in the most punter friendly way possible. We display only the finishing positions, jockey and trainer for each of the placed horses, the Starting Price of each of the placed horses, and a little basic information about the race.
Clicking through to “Full Result” – once it is available – will list the full finishing positions of every horse in the race. This adds some extra information. The “Dist” column is “Distance” – the distance the horse finished behind the horse in front. This may be a number, showing number of lengths, or an abbreviation for a horse racing distance – such as nose, head or neck.
Our full racing results also add age, weight (in stones and pounds) and OR – or “Official Rating”. In handicap races, this is the handicap number assigned to each runner, which dictates how much weight they carry in the race to try and ensure an even finish.
Racing Results for UK & Ireland
Our horse racing results cover every meeting in the UK & Ireland, and are available on every day there is racing. That, of course, includes major Festivals, so we provide Cheltenham Festival results, Grand National results, Royal Ascot results and so on.
