Frankel and Friend
Updated: Jul 23, 2019
Hall of Fame Trainer Bobby Frankel passed away in 2009. The image was taken at Saratoga in the summer of 2006. The following summer, I gave Bobby a copy of it one morning. I said, “I have a print of you and your dog”. In what sounds true to form, he said, “that’s not my dog” as all of his assistants chuckled around us. That being said, he was gracious enough to sign a second copy for me with the note. “To Jim, Robert Frankel”. I think that was a pretty big deal for him to do that.
