MILLARD TRIES TO TAKE CLAMOR. Santa Anita Selling War in. Prospect Arimo Runs a Poor Race. Los Angeles. Cal., December 21. W. D. Millard finally turned from claiming horses and took a hand at the running-up game. He tilted Clamor, the winner of the sixth race, from to ,400, but owner Keene retained him with the customary advance. The incident marks the first attempt to bid up a horse since the meeting opened, and from present indications it seems probable there will be some merry clashes in this line next week. Secretary E. . Smith was at his best today, presenting a splendid card, and the reward was a large attendance. The feature was a free handicap for three-year-olds and over, which was won easily by Frank Flittner. the most consistent horse here. Arimo was thought well of in this race on the strength of his performances on the metropolitan tracks, and was well supiorted by a few easterners, hut ran a dull race, failing to finish inside the money. Today was cut-in for the bookmakers, twenty-one of them taking stands and doing by far the best business of the meeting. W. B. Jennings was a visitor today, having run down from San Francisco. He may race some horses here later.
