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 Higher Truth (ran second) to drop our record overall to 12-of-26 since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $52 in wagers and payoffs totalling $53.50 for a still-profitable ROI of $2.02 for every $2 wagered. We need to go back on another winning streak.
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, Sept. 25
Parx Race No. 10 (4:22 p.m. ET/1:22 p.m. PT)
#7 Jackie’s Warrior (4-5 ML odds)

* He also ranks 2nd in the other 3 categories, including last race class, average late pace and best last purse.
