CARMANS CHANGE OF PLANS. When R. F. Carman left New York last fall with his big stable for Oakland he said ho would race at the Emeryville track throughout the meeting, birt lie has since partially abandoned that plan and will race the most of the horses in his string at the new track near Los Angeles. Nothing in a racing way has transpired since the opening at Oakland in connection, with his stable to discourage Mr. Carman, but he is said to have concluded thrjt there were more purses which his horses could win at Santa Anita Dark than they would if ho remained at Oakland. The Carman Stable at Oakland was the equal of any there in racing strength, but the general inferiority of the horses which will race ait Santa Anita Dark, while likely to prove of better class collectively than were ever raced at Ascot Dark, will not be as formidable opponents as the horses Carman has encountered with his racers at Oakland.- The departure of Carman, Blute and Guy Burns for the southern track leaves S. C. Hildreth supreme .in a racing way at Oakland, and his securing second call on the services of jockey Walter Miller greatly enhances his chances of capturing many of the big stakes to be decided during the meeting.
