In bis letter to Secretary Handle, Mr. Afkin reports a lively interest among the Oakland horsemen in the new track, and states that a large number of horses will bo shipped from Oakland to Santa Anita in lime for the opening. He also In his letter points out the advisability of the construction of additional stalls at Arcadia, fearing that the present capacity of 060 stalls will prove insufficient.
