BLAKELY IN SAN FRANCISCO SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. April 23— Andy Flakely and Tom Shaw spent three days here on the way from San Diego to New York and renewed acquaintance with scores of racing enthusiasts of the bay region. Flakely expressed much satisfaction with the showing of William Daniels Blanc Seing, which won the Tijuana Derby, and said, barring accidents, the colt would be a starter in both the Freakness and the Kentucky Derby. Blakely received a dispatch from New York while here telling of the safe arrival at Jamaica of Blanc Seing and the other members of the Daniel string. The son of North Star III. and the Cunard mare Bed of Roses had a slight cold following his victory over Harry Fayne Whitneys Spot Cash in the race on the border track. He was not started in the Tijuana Cup, which was won by the stables Lighter, and soon got hack into normal cotiidtion. The winning of the two stakes at Tijuana, following the successes of Fdward Gray and others at New Orleans, made the winter campaigning quite profitable to the well-known trainer. •Andy was greeted by many old timers as he made his way along Fowell street the other afternoon. He is remembered by the fans with the longest memories as a rider of jumpers out at Ingleside track in the nineties. To the later generation he is known principally by his achievements at Emeryville in training the consistent Arasee and other high-class performers.
