TRIUMPH OF GOLDEN MYTH LONDON. Eng., July 11. The 0,000 Eclipse Stakes, run at Sandown Park this afternoon, resulted in a victory for Sir George Bulloughs good four-year-old Golden Myth, son of Trcdennis Golden Lily. Lord Astors Tamar was second and Sir H. Birds Monarch third. The race was run in a heavy rain and the going was accordingly soft. A large crowd was attracted by tne big race in spite of the weather, however. Preston Grange led for the first mile of the mile and a quarter distance. Then Tamar went to the front and began to draw avay. Elliott sent Golden Myth up to the leader when ready in the stretch, however, and rode his mount into the lead by a short head in a thrilling finish. Even after Golden Myth overhauled him in the last hundred yards, Tamar came again, holding on with remarkable tenacity. Golden Myth was at 8 to 1 in the wagering, while Tamar ruled an even money favorite. Monarch was quoted at 100 to 8. King George and Queen Mary both attended the racing.
