For a sport that has been formally in existence for less than a decade, Pony Racing has been remarkably successful in achieving what it set out to do. As well as being an excellent grounding in riding technique and raceday procedures, it encourages children who may never have even thought about shortening their stirrup leathers to turn their thoughts to race-riding, be it under the Rules of Racing or on the ever popular Point-to-Point circuit. Perhaps as important as anything, it fuels the addiction and passion for racing which is so integral to the future success of the sport.

Essentially, the Pony Racing Authority is today reaching out beyond racing’s normal parish to attract potential jockeys from less likely audiences.

Project Overview

The Codeburo were asked to compile a WordPress site which enables PRA races to display real time fixtures and results. The core site works on a custom made WordPress plugin and searches and scrapes various sources to combine results into a tabular flat data format for usage in the front end. An ajax heartbeat is constantly looking for results to update the tables.

The frontend makes use of Angular JS as well as lots of custom jQuery functions.
