A.I. Pick of the Week (11/13)

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.

Two Saturday’s ago (as we skipped the Breeders’ Cup here), we won with Americanrevolution to get back to .500 at 16-for-32 since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $64 in wagers and payoffs totalling $63.70 for an ROI of $1.99 for every $2 wagered, as we try to get back to overall profitability. Every winning streak has to start with one win in a row, so hopefully we build on that.

This week, I ran the races picked by our stable of handicapping friends at “Tuley’s Thorougbred Takes” through the 1/ST BET programs and came up with our A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, Nov. 13

Aqueduct Race No. 8 (3:14 p.m. ET/12:14 p.m. PT)

#5 Happy Medium (2-5 ML odds)

* Happy Medium ranks 1st in 16 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I. 

* This 3-year-old gelding has only two lifetime races but ranks 1st in 8 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including best average speed in 2 of last 3 races, best speed at the distance, average lifetime earnings and in-the-money percentage.

* He also ranked in the Top 5 of 6 of the other 7 categories, including best speed at the track, percentage of horses beaten and last late pace.
