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.
Two weeks ago, we scored at Gulfstream with Fearless ($3.20 -- corrected from $8.20 in original post) in the Harlan’s Holiday Stakes to get back to .500 at 19-for-38 since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $76 in wagers and payoffs totaling $74 for an ROI of $1.95 for every $2 wagered (these figures also updated).
This week, I ran the races picked by our stable of handicapping friends at “Tuley’s Thoroughbred Takes” through the 1/ST BET programs and came up with our A.I. Pick of the Week:
Saturday, Jan. 1
Gulfstream Race No. 8 (3:37 p.m. ET/12:37 p.m. PT)
#6 Askew (9-2 ML odds)
* Askew ranks 1st in 11 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.
*This newly turned 4-year-old mare also ranks 1st in 7 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including average earnings at the track, average earnings at the distance and last late pace.
*In addition, Askew also ranks in the Top 5 in 4 of the other 8 categories, including speed in last race and best pedigree rating on dirt and at the distance.”
