Memory Champion Will Demonstrate Recall of 135-Year Kentucky Derby History

San Francisco, CA, April 01, 2010 --( 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 (SFTC) on Thursday April 15th, 2010 at 5pm. SFTC is located at 645 Fifth Street, San Francisco, CA 94107.

Given any year between 1875 and 2009, Mr. Santos will instantly name the winning horse, the winning jockey, and the winning time.

It is Santos' belief that no other person in United States history has ever demonstrated such a comprehensive recall of Kentucky Derby history.

“This amazing performance demonstrates what the human mind is capable of with proper training,” says Santos. He would like to put this extraordinary 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, 32 years old, lives in San Francisco and has successfully competed at the highest levels of competitive memory since 2003. He has won numerous bronze, silver, and gold medals in the USA National Memory Championship over the years, and in 2008 represented the United States in the World Memory Championship. Santos speaks world-wide, has authored several articles, created a best-selling home study course, developed an iPhone application, and is currently working on a new book about memory improvement and mental fitness.
