1/ST BET A.I Pick of the Week (4-24)

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, Express Train came up short as our top play in Oaklawn’s 9th race, but we’re still 5-for-10 since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $20 in wagers and payoffs totalling $25.20 for a healthy ROI of $2.52 for every $2 wagered.

In my “Tuley’s Thoroughbred Takes” column at vsin.com/horses, I wanted to come up with a long-shot play in the Elusive Quality Stakes, but I couldn’t find one to beat Value Proposition (or Front Run The Fed), so I’m making our former the A.I. Pick of the Week after running the race through 1/ST BET’s programs:

Saturday, April 24

Belmont Race No. 8 (5:49 p.m. ET)

#1 Value Proposition (4-1 ML odds)

  • Value Proposition ranks 1st in 17 of 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I. 

  • Value Proposition also ranks 1st in 6 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including best win percentage (3-of-6 lifetime), and is in the Top 5 in all 9 other categories.

  • We also get the best trainer-jockey combo with trainer Chad Brown and jockey Irad Ortiz Jr.
