The three owners of Spencer Road stood calmly together Saturday, discussing the outcome of the 112th Grand National Steeplechase in Butler on a mild and sunny afternoon after their horse was involved in a photo finish. The wait to determine that Spencer Road had, indeed, prevailed was long, but owners Gerry L. Brewster, Eleanor Russell and Joseph Tydings maintained their composure until the good news reached them. They smiled and hugged one another as they made their way to receive the coveted Grand National Challenge Cup with jockey Eric Poretz.

Ben's Cat came within a neck of setting a new Maryland Million record for victories, but fell short as Ellendale Racing's Roadhog pulled ahead in a photo finish in the $125,000 Maryland Million Turf. Both horses finished the one-mile course in 1:27.06. Ben's Cat trailed early, but was second going into the turn. In the final stretch,  Ben's Cat -- trained by King Leatherbury -- pulled ahead but was then outpaced by the lunging Roadhog. nfouriezos@baltsun.com twitter.com/nick4iezos

ATLANTA -- Leave it to track and field. On a night when the Olympics needed its events to reclaim center stage, the 100-meter finals posed not one, but two, burning questions.For the women, head or torso?For the men, has Linford gone mad?Wait, there's Great Britain's Linford Christie now, still shirtless, the stadium lights gleaming off his chiseled torso, completing his victory lap around the track.Linford was disqualified, you say?It's a bloody outrage.Two false starts by Christie, another by Trinidad and Tobago's Ato Boldon, and the fastest 10 seconds in sports took approximately 15 minutes.

CHARLEROI, Belgium - This year more than ever, the first part of the Tour de France belongs to the sprinters. With the exception of Wednesday's team time trial, this week's finishes are built for the specialists who use their fast-twitch muscles and considerable nerve to go into handlebar-to-handlebar combat at the end of a flat stage. And there are fewer chances than in previous years for them to win toward the race's end. Davis Phinney, the sprinter and first U.S. rider to win a Tour stage in 1986, calls the homestretch of a sprint a "vortex ... where you're going at maximum velocity, but you have to slow things down."

A cracked bone in his leg couldn't stop him. The same bone cracked again couldn't stop him. And yesterday, in the Northern Wolf Stakes at Laurel Park, bad racing luck couldn't stop him. In C C's Honor, a 6-year-old gelding of immense ability, overcame all that and prevailed in a dramatic four-horse photo finish to win the $75,000 stakes for older sprinters. His time of 1 minute, 2.90 seconds for 5 1/2 furlongs nearly matched the track record of 1: 02.80. The winner recorded that time despite losing momentum around the turn when two horses, one inside and one outside, squeezed him as if he were jelly in a sandwich.

Immediately after the final whistle signaling a 2-1 win for the Glenelg girls soccer team at River Hill on Thursday, the visiting Gladiators rushed the field and shortly after were all gathered together for a group photo. It wasn't quite the same as winning a state title - something both teams on the field have done in each of the previous three years - but it was as close as it could get for the No. 6 Gladiators. Glenelg got a game-winning goal from Kristen Schmidbauer with 15 minutes left in the first half and withstood some anxious second-half moments to beat its Howard County rival for the first time since 2004.

COLLEGE PARK - Dust is accumulating inside the trophy case marked with a small, red tag reading, "Reserved for next ACC championship trophy." The case sits in a hallway outside the Gossett Football Team House dining room, where several Maryland players talked excitedly yesterday about their prospects for replacing that all-too-conspicuous void with a gold-plated Atlantic Coast Conference trophy. Only in this season of parity, in which preseason favorite Clemson already has three conference losses, could there still be hope - optimism, even - that the Terps (5-2, 2-1 ACC)

The subtle chirps of digital cameras may now be the norm when it comes to photography, but there are still a devoted few who champion the click-whirr of a Polaroid camera. They savor the unpredictability of development and delight in not just the nostalgia, but in the artistry and creativity of instant film. Although the writing has been on the wall for a while that Polaroid would stop making its instant films and cameras, the death of the iconic film has sparked life, inspiration and creativity.

When jockey Jeremy Rose and his mount Arcata passed the finish line yesterday in the $80,000 Harrison E. Johnson Memorial Handicap for older horses at Laurel Park, the jockey was steaming. "I didn't think I'd won, and I was [peeved]," said Rose, who rode back to watch the replay of the photo finish between Arcata and Eddie C. and learned he actually had won - by a head bob. "I had told [the horse] we had the race won if he'd just keep running. He has a tendency to wait for the other horses when he gets the lead.

For those watching the Indy Racing League races, this season has been a thriller. It seems almost every result has been decided by a nose. Now, as the IRL heads into its last race of the season tonight, the Chevy 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, just 12 points separate first and second place. Defending champ Sam Hornish Jr. has the lead over Helio Castroneves. Castroneves, 27, is driving for the Penske organization in its first IRL season. Even so, Castroneves' presence isn't a surprise. But here is Hornish, 23, driving for Panther Racing, proving the title he won as a rookie was no fluke.
