A.I. Pick of the Week (8-28)

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.

Last Saturday, we won with Malathaat ($3.10) in the Grade 1 Alabama at Saratoga to improve our record to 11-of-23 overall since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $46 in wagers and payoffs totalling $50.80 for a respectable ROI of $2.21 for every $2 wagered.

This week, I ran Saturday’s plays from me and my handicapping friends in my “Tuley’s Thoroughbred Takes” column at vsin.com/horses through the 1/ST BET programs and came up with our A.I. Pick of the Week:

Saturday, Aug. 28

Saratoga Race No. 7 (3:02 p.m. ET/12:02 p.m. PT)

#1 Gamine (4-5 ML odds)

Gamine ranks 1st in a whopping 24 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I. 

This 4-year-old filly also ranks 1st in 11 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including best speed in last 3 races and best speed at the track, average earnings at the track and distance worked.

She also ranks in the Top 5 in all 4 of the other 4 categories, including last race class and purse.


1/ST Bet is offering a Travers Day Money-Back Special: Get your cash back — up to $10 — if your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd on all races at Saratoga on Travers day. GO HERE FOR DETAILS.
