1/ST BET A.I. Pick of the Week (3/19)

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.

The last time we had an A.I. Pick of the Week, we won with Green Light Go ($3.10) at Aqueduct on Feb. 26 to put us back over the .500 mark at 24-for-47 since taking over this feature about a year ago. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $94 in wagers and payoffs totaling $97.70 for an ROI of $2.08 for every $2 wagered.

This week, I ran the races picked by our stable of handicapping friends at “Team Tuley’s Thoroughbred Takes” through the 1/ST BET programs and came up with our A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, March 19

Gulfstream No. 10 (5:10 p.m. ET/2:10 p.m. PT)

#3 Arrest Me Red (5-2 ML odds)

* Arrest Me Red ranks 1st in 14 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.

* The 4-year-old son of Pioneerof the Nile also ranks 1st in 6 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including win percentage, in-the-money percentage, average lifetime earnings, average earnings at the distance and average turf earnings.

* Arrest Me Red also ranks in the Top 5 in 5 of the other 9 factors, including best speed and average speed in last 3 races, plus trainer winning percentage (Chad Brown) the last 2 years.
