1/ST BET A.I. Pick of the Week 4/30

By Dave Tuley  (VSiN senior reporter) 

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 lost with Clairiere at Oaklawn to drop back below .500 at 26-for-53 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 $106 in wagers and payoffs totaling $102.90 for an ROI of $1.94 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. The A.I. didn’t agree with the shorter-priced horses that we usually use in this feature, so I’m going with a little higher price as the best value bet of the week:


Saturday, April 30, 2022

Belmont Race No. 8 (5:01 p.m. ET/2:01 p.m. PT)

#8 Lord Flintshire (7-2 ML odds)

* Lord Flintshire ranks 1st in 9 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.

* The Jorge Abreu trainee makes his 4-year-old debut and also also ranks 1st in 5 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including average speed in last 3 races, last late pace and all of the top jockey stats for Irad Ortiz Jr.
