Last year, Luke 140 won the Galway Downs International CCI4*-L (one out of the two CCI4*-L events in the country to run in 2020), he won the CCI3*-S at VHT International, and he won the Advanced division at the Horse Park of New Jersey. His impressive season earned him a total of 150 points to be named the 2020 Standlee Premium Western Forage USEA Horse of the Year.

Luke 140 (Landos x Omega IV) is a 9-year-old Holsteiner gelding owned by the Luke 140 Syndicate and ridden by Boyd Martin.

Get to know more about the talented extrovert who enjoys having his face clipped, from Stephanie Simpson, his head groom and the barn manager at Boyd Martin Eventing.
