1/ST BET A.I. Pick of the Week (7-3)

By Dave Tuley  (VSiN.com 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.

We lost with Ava’s Grace two weeks ago at Belmont, but we’re still 8-of-16 overall since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $32 in wagers and payoffs totalling $40.40 for a still respectable ROI of $2.53 for every $2 wagered.

This week, I ran Saturday’s plays from me and my handicapping friends in my “Tuley’s Thoroughbred Takes” column at vsin.com/horses through the 1/ST BET programs and came up with our A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, July 3

Belmont No. 9 (5:12 p.m. ET/2:12 p.m. PT)

#9 Viadera (4-5 ML odds)

  • Viadera ranks 1st in 16 of 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I. 

  • This 5-year-old mare also ranks 1st in 7 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including average speed in last 3 races, best turf speed, average earnings at the distance and best speed at the distance.

  • She’s also ranked in the Top 5 in 7 of the other 8 categories, including ranking No. 2 with percentage of horses beaten and average lifetime earnings.
