Abstract (Document Summary)

For trainer Bobby Frankel, Sunday's $1-million Pacific Classic is almost bound to come off better than his induction last Monday into the Racing Hall of Fame at Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

"That's what everybody calls me, and I don't mind at all," Frankel said. "But I sign my name `Robert Frankel,' and that's what it ought to be. All it would have taken was a phone call to get it right. I'm going to have it changed."

"Senate Appointee, all I did with him was win a couple of races at Pomona. Where was Linda's Chief, the best dirt horse I ever trained? And Johnny's Image, probably the best grass horse I ever trained? There are at least 10 horses--Grade I winners--that are more important than the horses they put on there. You could name a hundred of my best horses, and you wouldn't come up with Val Des Bois and Senate Appointee. These things bother me. Forty or five years from now, I'll be dead and buried, and that plaque without the right horses will still be up there."
