Potentially missing winning time in smartform DB?

0 votes
Currently looking through the data in smartform DB, noticed some potentially missing data in the DB.

For example race 641527, 641532 have `winning_time_secs` of 0.0, I believe this is so because of MySQL quirks (i.e. instead of throwing errors, it just stores as 0.0 without complaining) + the data is just missing to begin with.

I believe these missing entries are not confined to the `winning_time_secs` column, but potentially many more. Is anyone else seeing the same issue? Will these entries be ever retroactively fixed?

Hi - there are some missing time values particularly in race histories between 2003 and 2009.  Still a minority but some.  They were supplied to us as is by our licensed vendors.  We have no intention of correcting these but any data that you can specify missing from 2009 onwards - even though a minority of the data available - we will address.  Send us an email via the contact form with any specific instances you have questions about and we will reply.  

Thanks.
