NELLIE FLAG AT DOWNS LEXINGTON, Ky., April 22. Trainer Bert Williams took to Churchill Downs this morning the five three-year-olds which will represent Warren Wrights Calumet Farm Stable at the spring meeting. The racers were Nellie Flag, Calumet Dick, ome Bull, Black Hat and Skip It. Nellie Flag, strapping daughter of American Flag Nellie Morse, whose rating as a Kentucky Derby candidate is alongside the very best colts, goes to the Downs in splendid condition. Her latest speed trial was a mile in 1:41, over the private track at Calumet Farm, Saturday, with jockey Eddie Arcaro in the saddle and carrying a total of more than 125 pounds. Whitney Moore has decided to begin his campaign at Detroit this year. He will ship his horses about May 1 from the Kentucky Association track here to that city.
