FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: World Record Holding Horse Honored by California State Assemblyman

Category : In the Press

Chino Hills, CA – December 19, 2010 – Seventeen-year-old thoroughbred gelding Lukas, widely recognized as the world’s smartest horse and holder of the world record for most numbers identified in 60 seconds, has been honored with an award certificate from State Assemblyman Curt Hagman. In a letter accompanying the certificate, Hagman congratulated trainer Karen Murdock for her tireless work with Lukas, saying “I extend my congratulations to you for all of your hard work in training Lukas.  I encourage you to continue the great work and wish you continued success in your future endeavors.”

Lukas, an ex-racer and former rescue, was recently approved by Guinness for his history-making record by correctly identifying nineteen random numbers in less than sixty seconds.  According to a recent America Online interview, Murdock states “This is the fastest we’ve ever done this. Guinness has very rigid specifications, so I couldn’t praise him and that was difficult!”

Lukas is an off-the-track thoroughbred gelding who reached international acclaim following his YouTube debut in 2009.  His legendary story has spread to fifty-one countries and his media links continue to grow.  Lukas has been profiled on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, HLN and Inside Edition and in feature stories released by the Associated Press and America Online.  His journey has been heard on Pet Talk Live Radio, Pet Life Radio, Pet Place Radio, All Paws Pet Talk Radio, RFD-Radio and Animal Talk Radio.  Lukas was nominated for the 2010 Equine Vision Award sponsored by Pfizer and American Horse Publications and he’s been invited to participate in the Wounded Warriors program.

Lukas’ time and services are donated to promote hope and happiness for all creatures.  Murdock’s speech excerpts and training videos to encourage kind practices will be available soon.
