The TopSport website has to be the most visually busy site I have come across, yet is still easy to understand, there is so much information presented. TopSport thankfully provide both Android and Apple Apps, which although having a smaller mobile screen interface still provide all of the function of the website, to which they should be congratulated. Anyone with a mobile phone who does not have the relevant Android or Apple App downloaded can even access the TopSport mobile website.
TopSport cover the domestic market for all Thoroughbred, Harness and Greyhound racing, plus an extensive coverage of international events. Although not the subject of this review, TopSport also offer 25 different sports markets (plus Entertainment, Esports and Politics!) both domestic and international.
