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 got back on the winning track with One Timer in Woodbine’s 8th race, improving to to 9-of-20 overall since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $40 in wagers and payoffs totalling $43.60 for a respectable ROI of $2.18 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. 7
Saratoga Race No. 10 (5:48 p.m. ET/2:48 p.m. PT)
#4 Knicks Go (6-5 ML odds)
Knicks Go ranks 1st in a whopping 27 of the 52 factors used by 1/ST BET A.I.
This 5-year-old horse also ranks 1st in 8 of the “Top 15 Factors” at betmix.com, including best speed in last race, best lifetime speed and average lifetime earnings.
He also ranks in the Top 5 of the other 7 categories, though that’s not saying much as it’s a five-horse field. The upside to that is he just has to beat four other horses and traffic shouldn’t be an issue.
