I work for a company that bets on the horses, and yet they use broadly similar techniques. But this doesn't replace humans at all.

Also as an aside, correctly predicting a superfecta happens quite a lot, and it is hard to tell from sample size of 1 if this was luck, skill or a combination of both. Probably a combination of both - their algo may have reduced the odds to 200-1 for example, and luck did the rest.
