1/ST BET A.I Pick of the Week (5-22)

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 week, on Saturday’s Preakness card at Pimlico, we gave out Somelikeithotbrown in the Grade 2 Dinner Party Stakes and he paid $7.20 to Win. The victory snapped a four-pick losing streak, but we’re still 6-for-12 overall since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $24 in wagers and payoffs totalling $32.40 for a nice ROI of $2.70 for every $2 wagered.

This week, we head out West to Santa Anita Park for the Grade 3 Honeymoon Stakes as we ran it through 1/ST BET’s programs and came up with our A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, May 22

Santa Anita Race No. 7 (7:19 p.m. ET)

#6 Going Global (6-5 ML odds)

  • Going Global ranks 1st in 18 of 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I. 

  • The 3-year-old filly also ranks 1st in 9 of the “Top 15 Factors” at, including best speed in last three races, best speed on the turf (for this race a 1 1/ 8 miles on the turf), best speed at the distance, average earnings at the track and best trainer/jockey combo. She really checks all the boxes against this field.

  • She’s also ranked in the Top 5 in 4 of the other 6 categories.
