MANLEY BRANCHES OUT INTO HORSERACING

According to a report published Wednesday by the Daily Racing Form,
"The Jockeys' Guild board of directors voted on Monday to hire Dwight
Manley, a Los Angeles rare-coins dealer and sports agent, and the
Rev. Jesse Jackson, the leader of the politically active Rainbow Push
Coalition, to become the guild's national managers, guild officials
and Manley said on Wednesday."

"Manley, 40, is a self-made millionaire and coin collector. His
initial business was built on the rare-coin trade, but he branched
into sports agency in the 1990's by representing the professional
basketball stars Dennis Rodman and Karl Malone. He has recently
struck several recent real estate deals in the Los Angeles area.

Manley said Jackson, 64, would serve as a co-manager of the guild
but that he would provide most of the guidance for the organization.
Manley and Jackson met in 1995, Manley said, and have worked on
several aid projects together, including one for hurricane victims."

"Manley said that a friend of his who is a horse owner in California
convinced him to seek the guild job. The horse owner flew Manley to
Belmont Park for the Belmont Stakes on June 10, Manley said, and
Manley spent part of the day visiting with riders in the jockeys'
room. At those meetings, Manley told several jockeys that he was
planning on bringing Jackson to the guild meeting this week."
