Rodeo Prizes And Attractions

Cash prizes totaling $4,000 will be awarded to the winners of the Wild West competition of the Baker Ranch Rodeo, Saugus, Sunday, May 1st, Roy Baker and Robert Anderson, promoters of the contest, have announced.

More than 200 riders and 400 horses have already been signed for the exhibition. All the horsemen and horsewomen are champion contenders and have paid entry fees for the privilege of competing. Most of the stellar names of rodeo land are already found among the entry lists.

Vera McGinnis, who returned from an exhibition tour of Asia just in time to capture the relay championship at Pendleton last year, will protect her title as the champion woman performer and rider. Fred Hunt, 1925 Pendleton champion in trick riding, expects to win new laurels. Sam Garrett, who captured the Cheyenne championship in bulldogging last year, will compete with Ben Corbett, Hugh Strickland, Leroy Jones, Gordon Jones and other stars.

Al Biscaro of Elko, Nevada, and Max O'Callahan of Twin Falls, Idaho, are two steer riders ready to tussle with the thirty head of young animals just imported by Anderson from the State of Sonora, Mexico.

The Baker ranch is located one mile from Saugus on the Mint Canyon paved highway. It is one hour's drive by auto from Los Angeles. The Southern Pacific will run a special train from Los Angeles, stopping at Glendale, Burbank, and San Fernando, for suburban passengers. The new stadium, just completed, will accommodate more than 25,000.
