EAGLEHAWK S LIVERPOOL CU? SPECIAL CABLEGRAM. LONDON, England, July 21. Sir H. Cun-liffe-Owcns Eaglehawk, a four-year-old bay colt, by Spearmint Countess Zia, passed the Stratford in the final eighth to win the Liverpool Cup t,cday by a length and a half. The Duke of Portlands Evander was third. On the way to the post Stratford was fractious and managed to unseat Steve Donoghue in the course of his wild actions. Don-oghue was considerably shaken up, but remounted the colt and rode him in the race. Bumble Bee, ridden by the American jockey, George Archibald, took the lead at the start and held it until the first mile had been covered. Then Donoghue sent Stratford into the lead and appeared to have the race won when Eaglehawk moved up with his challenge. Eaglehawk had enough speed in reserve to settle his argument with Stratford in a few strides and went on to win. Stratford held second place safe from Evander by a length. Twelve horses started in the race. A summary follows: Sir H. Canliffe-Owens BagleliaTvU, b. c, 4, by Spearmint Countess Zia Gray, 107 pounds, 4 to 1 1 L.
