In Sagamore Racing's Royal Ascot debut, Miss Temple City will don Sagamore silks in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes on Friday. The 3-year-old filly by Temple City, out of Glittering Tax, by Artax, is looking to secure her second consecutive victory after winning the 43rd running of the Hilltop Stakes on Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico Race Course. "She is looking great, feeling good and has trained in England since last week," Hunter Rankin, president of Sagamore Racing, said. "We're looking forward to competing at Royal Ascot and excited for the experience. There is rich history associated with the event and venue, and it's a great honor for all the connections of Miss Temple City." Trained by Graham Motion, who recently secured his 2,000th career win, Miss Temple City will go a mile on the turf without Lasix against 3-year old fillies from England, Ireland and France. Under shared ownership between Glyndon-based Sagamore Farm, The Club Racing LLC and Allen Rosenbaum, Miss Temple City has a 5-3-1-1 career record with $138,300 in earnings to date.
Gausman yields a run in rehab start for Keys
In what could be his final rehabilitation start as he recovers from shoulder tendinitis, right-handed pitcher Kevin Gausman gave up one run — a leadoff home run by Sean Godfrey that traveled more than 400 feet — in two innings at High-A Frederick on Tuesday night. The 24-year-old right-hander threw 29 pitches, 20 for strikes, and faced all nine of the Carolina Mudcats batters at Harry Grove Stadium. "It felt pretty good, other than the first pitch," said Gausman after the outing. "Didn't think he was going to take me deep right there. You know, that's just part of the game."

Playoff panel will wait for Army-Navy if necessary
The College Football Playoff selection committee has agreed to a solution that would enable Navy to be considered for a berth in a New Year's bowl if it manages to qualify. At issue was the Army-Navy game being played the weekend after the College Football Playoff selection committee picks the schools to play in the national semifinals and fills open slots in four other marquee bowl games that are played on either New Year's Eve or New Year's Day. On Tuesday, during a meeting of the Collegiate Commissioners Association in Asheville, N.C., it was decided the selection committee should wait until after the Army-Navy game to complete the New Year's Six bowl lineup if the outcome of that contest would affect the pairings. "From a Naval Academy standpoint, we are very pleased the conference commissioner's came to this decision. I think they recognized the importance and pageantry of Army-Navy — it's America's game and deserves to be the culmination of the college football regular season," Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said.

NBA: Washington Wizards guard Garrett Temple has exercised the player option on his contract for next season, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The decision is not a surprise; Temple said he expected to opt in last month. Temple, 29, will make $1.1 million next season, a bump in pay from the $981,084 he made this past season. A combo guard, Temple provides a positive locker-room presence, solid defense and depth at both guard positions. He appeared in 52 regular-season games and was called on to make 18 starts for the injured Bradley Beal. He averaged 3.9 points and shot 37.5 percent from three in 14.1 minutes per contest before a strained right hamstring ended his regular season on March 9.
