LEXINGTON, Ky. - The death of Spectacular Bid last week of an apparent heart attack at age 27 left two thoroughbreds who reside side by side as the greatest living racehorses. Cigar and John Henry, revered residents of the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, rank 1-2 among thoroughbreds still alive in accomplishment and, fortunately for fans, visitor accessibility. About 1 million people visit the 1,200-acre park each year, and at least 25 percent come expressly to see Cigar and John Henry, said Cathy Roby, manager of the Hall of Champions.

When NBA scoring leader and former Towson Catholic star Carmelo Anthony threw the punch Saturday night that led to a 15-game suspension, he was following an age-old sports code. If a teammate is physically threatened, you stand beside him. But Nate Robinson, the New York Knicks guard who helped escalate the fight, believed he was following an equally powerful code. If an opponent rubs it in during a big victory, let him know you won't take it. Such deeply engrained codes are among the impediments NBA commissioner David Stern and other officials face as they try to eradicate fighting in sports.
