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.
We’re 26-for-56 (46.4 percent) since taking over this feature last spring. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $112 in wagers and payoffs totaling $102.90 for an ROI of $1.84 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:
Saturday, May 28, 2022
Belmont Race 8 (4:40 p.m. ET/1:40 p.m. PT)
#2 Highly Motivated (5-2 ML odds)
* Highly Motivated ranks 1st in a whopping 25 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.
* This 3-year-old son of Into Mischief also ranks 1st in 8 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including best speed in last 3 races, best average lifetime earnings and average last 3 purse.
* Highly Motivated also has the top trainer/jockey win percentage with Chad Brown and Flavien Prat.
