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-55 (47.3 percent) since taking over this feature last spring. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $110 in wagers and payoffs totaling $102.90 for an ROI of $1.87 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 on the Churchill card even though Pimlico is dominating most of the attention on Saturday:
Saturday, May 21, 2022
Churchill Race 4 (2:13 p.m. ET/11:23 a.m. PT)
#2 Casa de Goat (7-5 ML odds)
* Casa de Goat ranks 1st in 21 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I. despite having just one career race.
* This 3-year-old daughter of Twirling Candy also ranks 1st in 7 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including last race pace and also top jockey stats for Ricardo Santana Jr and trainer Brad Cox.
