Just have to break it into manageable chunks, I wouldn't have a clue how to do a power query.

*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
