*HINT* - most of the race sites have a *private* api that isn't exposed but is easily discoverable. why battle with scraping from html (classnames/id's etc) when you can just load up an object from json and party on that! ;)
Have you considered decompiling their android apps to get the API addresses, Jim? I'm sure both sporting life and racing post etc would have andorid apps

SB -it's ok, i've got the required end points for all of the more bread 'n butter stuff. and yes, using tools such as fiddler can be useful, especially if you spoof the browser header to make it appear as if it's a mobile device ;)
