U.S. Memory Champion Seeks to Promote Memory Improvement and Mental Fitness by Demonstrating Perfect Recall of 135-Year Kentucky Derby History
SAN FRANCISCO, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Chester Santos, the 2008 USA National Memory Champion, has memorized all Kentucky Derby results since its inception in 1875, including the winning horses and jockeys and their winning times to the hundredths of a second (e.g. 2:37.75).
Santos, a San Francisco resident, will display this unparalleled knowledge of the Kentucky Derby in a demonstration to be held at the San Francisco Tennis Club on Saturday May 1st, 2010 at 12pm.
Given any year between 1875 and 2009, Mr. Santos will instantly name the winning horse, the winning jockey, and the winning time.
No other person in United States history has ever demonstrated such a comprehensive recall of Kentucky Derby history. Others have attempted to name only the winning horses and jockeys, in order, but amazingly, Santos can recall them all along with the times, forwards, backwards, and by year.
"This extraordinary performance demonstrates what the human mind is capable of with proper training," says Santos. He would like to put this feat of memory on display throughout the United States in order to help promote memory improvement and mental fitness.
Santos has one of the best-trained memories in the world and is a professional speaker, coach, and corporate trainer. He helps people from all over the world to unlock the extraordinary power of their minds, and hopes that his demonstration will help people realize what is possible if they take the time to engage in mental exercise and training. According to Santos, "this training is not lengthy or arduous, but rather fun and easy for anyone to do."
Santos speaks worldwide, and has authored several articles and a best-selling home study course. He has also developed an iPhone application entitled "Steel Trap," and is currently working on a new book about memory improvement and mental fitness.
