Legendary horse trainer Robert “Bobby” Frankel, a long-time Pacific Palisades resident, is among seven athletes and sports figures elected to the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame (IJSHOF) for 2011. Frankel, who died a year ago, scored 3,654 first-place victories and his nearly $228 million in career earnings made him the second winningest trainer in horseracing history. He was a five-time recipient of the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Trainer. Among this year’s seven honorees are five Americans, one Briton and one Russian. They will be inducted into the IJSHOF museum, on the campus of Israel’s Wingate Institute, in July 2013.
