Minutes before post time at Santa Anita recently, nine thoroughbreds and their owners paraded to the paddock area in an entrance only slightly less grand than that of Caesar returning to Rome. While the general public queued behind white barricades, trumpets erupted, bright silk pennants flew, camera shutters crackled.

A Gypsy leader Wednesday denounced a Sherman Oaks fortuneteller who swindled four customers of more than $40,000 and predicted she would be blackballed by Gypsies nationwide. John Merino, leader of the Los Angeles-area Gypsy Council, testified in Van Nuys Superior Court that the clan has raised about $10,000 to repay the victims and he hopes to collect another $20,000 from fellow Gypsies. He said nothing about the remaining $10,000.
