1/ST BET A.I Pick of the Week (3-13)

We’ve been tinkering with the Artificial Intelligence programs at 1/ST BET, which gives us more than 50 data points (such as speed, pace, class, jockey, trainer and pedigree stats) for every race based on how you like to handicap.

Last Saturday, our A.I. Pick of the Week got back on the winning track with Chateau winning Aqueduct’s Race 7 at 7-2, paying $9.60 to Win. That makes our plays 2-for-4 with the other winner being Maxfield ($3.20) at Fair Grounds on Feb. 13. So, based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $8 in wagers and payoffs totalling $12.80 for a healthy ROI of $3.20 for every $2 wagered.

For this weekend’s races, we ran my team’s picks from my Tuley’s Thoroughbred Takes column at VSiN.com/horses through the 1/ST Bet programs and came up with my colleague Ed Sehon’s pick in Gulfstream’s 11th race on Saturday as our A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, March 13
