Grand Prix Level Show Jumper to Promote Equine Stomach Ulcer Prevention

DULUTH, Ga., Jan. 9, 2006 — Merial announced today that Grand Prix Level Show Jumping athlete AAron Vale will serve as an official spokesperson for the company’s equine ulcer product – ULCERGARD™ (omeprazole), the only product proven to prevent stomach ulcers in horses.

“We are excited that many top-level athletes have recognized the importance of preventing equine stomach ulcers and are using ULCERGARD. Having a great sportsman such as AAron address this significant healthcare issue will further educate horse owners of this condition and the importance of prevention,” said Jeannine Courser, Product Manager, Merial Equine

Pharmaceuticals. “We welcome AAron Vale to our ULCERGARD team of supporters and look forward to working with him to promote the importance and availability of ulcer prevention among other show jumpers.”

“I am excited to come on board and to join the many other athletes that have recognized the importance of equine ulcer prevention with ULCERGARD,” said Vale. “Frequent trailering, intense training and varied feeding schedules are all part of the travel stress my horses regularly endure as part of my intense competitive schedule. Competing as often as I do, I can’t have an

edge in competition with a horse that has ulcers. That’s why I am committed to using LCERGARD as part of my daily regimen and sharing that commitment with others.”

In 2004, AAron held the record for the most Grand Prix wins in one year at 18. This year he has surpassed his own record and sets his sights on the next Olympic Games. Along with trainer Andrea King, Vale operates training facilities in Ocala, Florida and in Aiken, South Carolina.

As part of this relationship, AAron Vale will participate in various consumer events and promotions representing the ULCERGARD brand, as well as display the ULCERGARD logo on banners and various branded clothing at competitive events.
