President of Exceller Fund on talk radio February 18

Exceller Fund President Gary Contessa, whose rapport
with racing organizations and fellow horsemen generates thousands of dollars
for the Exceller Fund, will be a guest on the “View From A Broad” radio talk
show on Thursday February 18. More information is available at

Based in New
, Contessa consistently ranks among the nation’s
leading trainers in both money and victories. His dedication to Thoroughbred
racing extends to his generosity towards retired racehorses and he houses a
number of former runners at his New
farm while inspiring others to lend their
support to the Exceller Fund. The New York Racing Association and New York
Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association have been particularly generous thanks to
their confidence in him.  

Contessa has been in the news lately as the trainer
of the promising Eightyfiveinafifty, an early contender for this year’s
Kentucky Derby. The colt’s clever moniker incorporates his mother’s name,
Lifeinthefastlane, and reflects his ability to exceed the “speed limit” when
racing or exercising.

Contessa will discuss a variety of topics on the talk
radio program with hostess Marion Altieri, a wry equine essayist.
