1/ST BET A.I Pick of the Week (4-3)

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, we had another winning A.I. Pick of the Week as Annex won Gulfstream’s 11th race -- the Cutler Bay Stakes -- and paid $4.20. That was our fourth straight winner and makes our plays 5-for-7 since taking over this feature. So, based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $14 in wagers and payoffs totalling $25.20 for a healthy ROI of $3.60 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 Simply Ravishing as our A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, April 3

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

#6 Simply Ravishing (5-2 ML odds)

  • Ranked 1st in 19 of 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.

  • Simply Ravishing also ranks 1st in 9 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including average speed in last 3 races and average lifetime earnings overall and at the distance, and is in the Top 5 in 5 others.

  • Simply Ravishing is also a horse-for-the-course with a win in the Grade 1 Alcibiades last fall and then a decent fourth-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies.

  • Horses with resumes like this are usually odds-on, but we’re getting a morning-line price of 5-2.
