A.I. Pick of the Week (1/29)

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 week, we won with Awesome Family ($3.20) in Gulfstream's 2nd race as we stayed above .500 at 22-for-42 since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $84 in wagers and payoffs totaling $88.60 for an ROI of $2.11 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:

Saturday, Jan. 29

Gulfstream Race No. 10 (4:12 p.m. ET/1:12 p.m. PT)

#8 Speaker’s Corner (2-1 ML odds)

* Speaker’s Corner ranks 1st in 15 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.

* This newly turned 4-year-old also ranks 1st in 4 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including best lifetime speed, best speed on a fast track, bets in-the-money percentage and average class of races.

* He is also in the Top 5 in 5 of the other 11 categories, including last race class, average speed in last 3 races, trainer win percentage over the past year (Bill Mott) and jockey at current meet Junior Alvarado).
