1/ST BET A.I Pick of the Week (7-24)


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, our pick on Arklow lost, so we dip to 8-of-18 overall since taking over this feature. Based on a $2 Win bet on the A.I. Pick of the Week, that’s $36 in wagers and payoffs totalling $40.40 for a still respectable ROI of $2.24 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, July 24

Del Mar Race No. 10 (9:36 p.m. ET/6:36 p.m. PT)
