MORE ON DWIGHT MANLEY AND THE JOCKEY'S ASSOCIATION

"Jockey Alex Solis, who was instrumental in bringing sports agent
and rare-coin collector Dwight Manley to the attention of the Jockeys'
Guild, said he's committed to turning around the Guild and hopes to
bring it back to prominence in the Thoroughbred industry."

"He's a very successful businessman; he has some very good ideas,"
Solis said of Manley. "We're still working out the details of his
contract but expect it will all be completed sometime (the week of
July 10)."

"The media is going to write what they want to," Solis said in
reference to several "incorrect" reports that Manley and Jackson
would serve as co-managers. "They don't want to know the truth.
Jesse Jackson will only serve as a consultant to Manley and not
make any decisions (for the Guild)."

[I'd like to wish Manley and the jockeys the best of luck in getting
through the difficult times their guild has been facing.  It's a
very tough profession that deserves a top-flight spokesman. Who
knows, perhaps Manley will someday be persuaded to assist the
American Numismatic Association through tough times as well. -Editor]
