The official horserace data from the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) website is now available from, with the first 50 records free. It's constantly updated and cleaned directly from the HKJC website.

Great initiative - is there any plans to keep this up to data? It seems like the last data entry was from 5/5/2021.

Is this an official source of data, or is this a private project? It sure would be nice if the racing authorities provided this data for everyone for free in this format, I guess HKJC will be the first to do this.. Maybe from this initiative?

P.S! I did find a few records lacking from 08/04/2021 HV and 11/04/2021 ST.

Hi, the data is indeed kept up-to-date at the new URL, The data is also cleaner now, e.g. with a column for race date. A table of the raw data is also available.

This is data scraped from the Hong Kong Jockey Club's website. Unfortunately they don't seem to provide the data in a clean way such as CSV files or an API.

NB. The records you said were lacking don't seem to be lacking any more :) e.g. races on 2021-04-11 are here:
