The Comma Delimited files have a "multi-record" format, one record type for the RACE Information and the other for the Chart Line or HORSE Information. The definitions of the fields and their types are described at the end of this document.

Each "RACE" Record begins with an "R" in the first field and preceeds the horse related information in the file Each "HORSE" Record begins with an "H" and follows the race line information

Structure for table: Race Record Number in ( ) after 'Type' is maximum width of field. Number after comma, if any, is number of decimal places.
