Word reached here today intimating that on account of the delay in construction of the grandstand and clubhouse at Tanforan the meeting at San Francisco will not open until New Years Day instead of on Thanksgiving Day, as originally planned. Robert F. Leighton, the dean of racing officials in the far West, has been tendered-the position of racing manager of the Tanforan track by the board of directors and Rudolph Spreckels, the vice-president of the new Pacific Coast Jockey Club.
