Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
 
Where did you get your data from?
Since Horse Racing Nation is a wiki, our data comes from our users. Much like Wikipedia, all information coming in and out of our site is submitted, checked and edited by users. If you spot an error, as a registered member, you can fix it. If you spot some missing information, feel free to add it. The site is driven by the fans of racing, and their participation.
 
How accurate is the data?
Since Horse Racing Nation is a wiki, our data is not only added by users, but checked and verified as well. While browsing the site, if someone spots an error, they can fix it on the fly. Our system was also designed to help minimize errors as much as possible. Type-ahead controls (the feature that pops-up a list of options while entering data) help to manage the data. Obviously horse racing has a deep history and we are prone to error, but by the power of the wiki model, we hope to minimize those inconsistencies. So, help us out, and fix what’s wrong!
 
Can I contribute?
Absolutely! Horse Racing Nation is all about fan participation and interaction. Whether you want to submit a Play of the Day, add a horse, fix a silk, add a photo, update a race or just comment on your favorite horse, it all helps!
 
If I have feedback about the website, can I submit it? 
Yes, of course!  We welcome feedback from all of our visitors.  We might even publish your thoughts on here.

Is the site free?
The founders of Horse Racing Nation love the power of free, and everything on our site is free. Adding data, reviewing data and enjoying data – all free. So, enjoy!
 
How do I get my blog posted on your site?
Each day our team surfs the web and aggregates racing news and blogs to the Horse Racing Nation system. If you would like to have your blog added to our routine, just contact us with a link (or RSS feed preferably) and we’ll add you to the rotation.
 
There are duplicate horses in the database, what do I do?
With so many races and horses in the racing, we anticipated on occasion a duplicate horses popping-up in the database. As a result, we have a tool designed specifically to merge these horses into one. If you notice one, feel free to let us know, and we’ll correct it as soon as possible.
 
Meanwhile, to help avoid duplicates, when adding horses, people or other entities, please utilize the type-ahead control, which pops-up with existing names in the database and will link the data together when selected.
 
What is the type-ahead control?
When entering data such as names (horses, people, tracks and stakes) we have designed a menu which will pop-up below the box with existing entities in the database matching what you’re adding.

For example, if you’re adding Todd Pletcher, his name will pop-up below as you type it. Rather than typing the rest of his name, you just have to select him from the list. This will ensure all data is properly linked and correct in the system.
