A.I. Pick of the Week (12/18)

By Dave Tuley  ( 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.

Last Saturday, we lost with Messier in the Los Alamitos Futurity to fall just below .500 at 18-for-37 since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $74 in wagers and payoffs totaling $70.80 for an ROI of $1.91 for every $2 wagered.

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, Dec. 18

Gulfstream Race No. 9 (3:59 p.m. ET/12:59 p.m. PT)

#6 Fearless (8-5 ML odds)

* Fearless ranks 1st in a whopping 21 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.

* This 5-year-old gelding also ranks 1st in 9 of the “Top 15 Factors” at, including best lifetime speed, best speed at the track, best speed in last 3 races and average earnings at the track.

* In addition, Fearless also ranks in the Top 4 of the other 6 factors, including last late pace, average earnings at the distance, and best trainer/jockey ROI at the meet for Todd Pletcher and Luis Saez.
