A.I. Pick of the Week (8-14)

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 won our second straight A.I. Pick of the Week as Knicks Go ($4.10) won the Grade 1 Whitney Stakes at Saratoga, improving our record to 10-of-21 overall since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $42 in wagers and payoffs totalling $47.70 for a respectable ROI of $2.27 for every $2 wagered.

I cut my gambling teeth at Arlington International Racecourse in the early 1990s and am saddened that the track is probably having its final Arlington Million Weekend (though the famous race has been renamed the Mr. D. Stakes). I wanted to find a long shot, but the 1/ST BET programs have the favorite as too strong and is our A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, Aug. 14

Arlington Race No. 9 (7:13 p.m. ET/4:13 p.m. PT)

#3 Domestic Spending (6-5 ML odds)

  • Domestic Spending ranks 1st in a whopping 20 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I. 

  • This 4-year-old gelding also ranks 1st in 9 of the “Top 15 Factors” at, including best speed in last race, average turf earnings and percentage of horses beaten.

  • He also ranks in the Top 5 in the other 6 categories, including best turf speed and best lifetime speed.
