I can not agree more.. :ThmbUp:

One of the worst possible sites both from the UX and from the interactivity scope of views!

I was trying to find a way to scrap the R/T odds from this miserable site:

http://www.kentuckyderby.com/racing-wagering/kentucky-derby-live-odds

I would expect them to provide some form of a REST API making it easy for third parties to reuse their services, instead they made it as difficult as possible to parse their feeds!

Complete Idiots.

REST API? Hell, they can't even do XML let alone JSON. I don't know what they'll do when even one starts to abandon HTTP and HTML for HTTPS and HTML5.
