Laurel Park $100,000 Sprint more likely for Ben's Cat Owner-trainer King Leatherbury said Saturday that he is leaning toward entering Ben's Cat in the $100,000 Sprint at next Saturday's Jim McKay Maryland Million but won't make a decision until he handicaps both the Sprint and $125,000 Turf. Ben's Cat, who could become the first horse to win four Maryland Million races, is pre-entered in both races. Leatherbury, 81, says that if his decision is clear-cut, he will not cross-enter the horse, as he did last year.

NEW YORK -- Sprint Nextel Corp. said yesterday that it would spend as much as $3 billion over the next two years on a new high-speed wireless data network that's based on the new WiMax technology. Unlike the WiFi standard that provides wireless Internet access in such places as airports and coffee shops, a WiMax signal can cover whole cities or regions. The third-largest U.S. mobile-phone service provider will spend $1 billion next year and $1.5 billion to $2 billion in 2008, Sprint chief executive Gary D. Forsee told a news conference in New York.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Kansas Speedway president Pat Warren was in race control on the roof of the track when lights on the backstretch went dark during the first half of Saturday night's 5-hour Energy 400, the first NASCAR Sprint Cup night race at the 14-year old facility. His staff immediately discovered a fuse had gone out in a control panel. Because the lights on the inside of the backstretch and everywhere else on the 1.5-mile tri-oval remained illuminated, racing continued until full lighting outside the track was restored about 45 minutes later.

Of all the Breeders' Cup races, the Sprint has been the most controversial.There was even a movement a couple of years ago to do away with the race altogether after three horses -- Mr. Brooks, Mr. Nickerson and Shaker Knit -- broke down between 1990 and 1992 and were destroyed.Yet when entries were taken last week for Saturday's Breeders' Cup XI at Churchill Downs, the race that many people wanted to discard drew the most entries.A total of 25 horses were pre-entered, although only 14 can start.

After sprinting six times and taking four at-bats in a simulated game Monday, injured Orioles third baseman Manny Machado really has one more thing to accomplish before beginning to play in games at extended spring training -- and that could happen as early as Tuesday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Machado ran 90-foot sprints six times Monday, but he has not yet cut on the bases while running. He is going to run 180-foot sprints Tuesday and could add cutting around the diamond then.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has a "big day" scheduled today, according to manager Buck Showalter. He'll run sprints for the first time in Sarasota, Fla., as part of his rehabilitation from left knee surgery in October. The sense is that, if he rebounds from those sprints without any problems, the next step for Machado will be playing in games at extended spring training before an eventual minor league rehab assignment. There is no timetable for Machado's return, but I'd say we're looking at early- to mid-May before he is playing for the Orioles.

Manny Machado finally hit against live pitching, should sprint soon and may have sneaked in a couple dashes in Sarasota, Fla., when no one was looking Saturday. The Orioles All-Star third baseman, who had offseason surgery on his left knee in October, has been steadily doing his rehabilitation in Florida without a set timetable for his return. On Saturday, he took a step forward by hitting against live pitching, specifically left-hander Johan Santana, who his rehabbing from shoulder surgery.

In the next step of his recovery from October knee surgery, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will take two at-bats against Johan Santana in a “simulated” game on Saturday in Sarasota, Fla. Machado, 21, can do everything but sprint. And he will not be running the bases Saturday. “Haven't heard the word sprint yet,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.  He likely will take some time in between at-bats against Santana, who is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

The manner in which No. 13 Loyola pounded No. 18 Towson, 20-4, on Wednesday seemed to catch even Greyhounds coach Charley Toomey by surprise. Loyola was fast, opportunistic and overwhelming in almost every aspect of the victory, which was the program's most convincing win since 2007. But Toomey said the next challenge for the Greyhounds (2-1) is turning around and trying to get ready for Holy Cross in a Patriot League opener for both teams on Saturday. The quick turnaround is a difficult task, but nearly as important is avoiding the emotional and physical letdown that can follow a seemingly easy outcome.
