Production Has Wrapped on GSN's 'AMERICAN DREAM DERBY'

Winner Determined at Live Race on February 21st and Takes Home $250,000 and a Stable of Thoroughbreds

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 1 -- Twelve contestants from around the country have learned the wonderful world of thoroughbred horse racing for GSN's eight-episode unscripted series AMERICAN DREAM DERBY, the first reality show set in this exciting arena. This unprecedented series will premiere on Monday, January 10 with the first and second episodes airing back-to-back (9:00-11:00 PM ET/PT) and will culminate with a live race event on Monday, February 21, 2005; the winner takes home $250,000 and a stable of thoroughbreds.

The lucky contestants chosen to experience the thoroughbred horse racing industry are:

Chris Black, a pharmaceutical sales rep from Euless, TX
Susan Bosso, a hotel sales manager from Ocala, FL
Eric Childers, a student from Springfield, MO
Tara Clark, a ranch owner and stunt woman from Pioche, NV
Aaron Coen, a student from Newark, DE
David Malatesta, a graphic artist from Los Angeles, CA
Deanna Manfredi, a marketing consultant from Philadelphia, PA
Dean Pellegrin, a Pharmacist from Houma, LA
Jewel Savage, a correctional officer from Baltimore, MD
Sara Slavin, a model from West Milford, NJ
LeVar Thomas, a music producer/artist from Bronx, NY
Tara Walden, a message therapist from Los Angeles, CA

Contestants will experience everything from the daily chores of life in the stables, training and caring for the animals, to living the high life of an owner in a nearby mansion. The players will need to use smarts, strength and the series' stable of 15 thoroughbred horses to get to the final race.

LeAnn Rimes will sing the theme song "You Take Me Home," and will make a special guest appearance in the premiere episode and perform live as part of the two-hour finale episode. Steve Santagati ("Looking for Love: Bachelorettes in Alaska") serves as host of the series and will guide the contestants through various challenges they will face as they learn the horse racing world from the ground up.
