A good weekend for the classics

Troy, cinema's version of The Iliad, drew $45.6m worth of customers in theaters this weekend. Smarty Jones, the best horse many a racetracker has seen in some time, was surely the reason TV ratings for the Preakness jumped 29 percent over last year. Smarty did not disappoint his fans. Mark your calendars: the Belmont is June 5, when he'll be a very short price to win the Triple Crown. The champagne will be on ice in the Sauer household.
