HIS EXPERIENCE AT LOS ANGELES. "My ilea, the first time I went to Los Angeles, was that I could afford to spend a few thousand dollars Da- a long winter rest. I took the family along with me and only shipjied three or four hoists." said It. Angarola a few days ago in speaking of his experiences on the coast several years ago. "It was fine tiiat season. The horses paiil my every expense and I headed back east a few thousand to the good. "The next season. I decided, was going to be my money season. I shipped two carloads of horses and secured the services of Walter Miller to do my light riding and Willie Diigan for the heavier mounts. I Just naturally could not see how I was to be beaten. "On the way out the horses tool; sick, and when I landed I did not have one in the lot that could win anything. I dubbed along with them until I had lost enough money to buy a race track, and then 1 d ided to send a string of them to Oakland. I had some dickey-legged ones t; at could race in the mud. and it had lieeu raining there almost continuously. "The horses were ready to race, and had shipped well, but my hoodoo was still active. Word went around that I was heading for Oakland, and that put an end to the rain. Alioiit that time I had to liu-tle aroint I to gather my car fare back east. •Its a line place to race for the winter, but the only way to do it right is to take a few horses and count it a holiday. Thats the dope that cashes."
