1/ST BET A.I Pick of the Week (4-10)

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 four-week winning streak was snapped as Simply Ravishing finished out of the money in Keeneland’s 9th race. We’re still 5-for-8 since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $16 in wagers and payoffs totalling $25.20 for a healthy ROI of $3.15 for every $2 wagered.

For this weekend’s races, I ran all the races on Saturday’s cards at major tracks and came up with Concert Tour as our A.I. Pick of the Week despite his short odds:

Saturday, April 10

Keeneland Race No. 9 (5:30 p.m. ET)

#5 Concert Tour (1-1 ML odds)

  • Ranked 1st in 20 of 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.

  • Concert Tour also ranks 1st in 6 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com -- including best speed in last race, best lifetime speed and best distance pedigree rating -- and is in the Top 5 in the other 9.

  • Concert Tour is also a horse-for-the-course as that “last race” was a romp in the Grade 2 Rebel Stakes four weeks ago that also gives him the best average earnings at the track.
