Issue downloading HTML code. Server side issues?

I'm trying to develop a program that compiles racing statistics from a website with subpages that have .htm extensions (http://ift.tt/PkXzr0), but I'm having issues downloading the HTML code from there. Oddly enough, it loads on my browser with no problems.

In an attempt to troubleshoot, I first tried downloading the HTML code from google's main page, which went through just fine. I then tried to download from another website with an .htm extension (http://ift.tt/1J3lpwq), and again, it came through just fine.

The error I get is a (500) Internal server error, which sounds like it's the website's side that's got the error. But again, it loads just fine in the browser. What's going on?

Here is my code:

 string url = "http://ift.tt/1I0O7mT;; WebClient c = new WebClient(); Stream s = c.OpenRead(url); StreamReader r= new StreamReader(s); string html = r.ReadToEnd(); Console.WriteLine(html);
