After our successful prediction of the Kentucky Derby and California Chrome’s continued dominance in the Preakness, we couldn’t resist from throwing our hats into the Triple Crown prediction ring. Will we finally see a horse awarded the Triple Crown this year, becoming only the 12th horse to win that honor? The Belmont Stakes has a reputation as the Test of the Champion, but this year we’ll have the test answers before the race even begins.
By setting Nutonian’s robotic data scientist, Eureqa, against thousands of data points and years of race performances, we’ll have answers to the question of whether this year will see the first Triple Crown winner since 1978. We can also investigate why California Chrome’s paltry bloodlines have led to such a dazzling career, and even how to spot the next California Chrome. You don’t have to take my word for it – try it out yourself on your own data and see how accurate your predictions can be!
