Top horse trainer died at the age of 68Five time winner of the Eclipse Award for top horse trainer Bobby Frankel recently died in his Pacific Palisades home due complications brought about by lymphoma. He died last November 16 at the age of 68.

He also won eleven times for the Eclipse Award with ten horses.

Frankel was born in Brooklyn and trained thousands of horses where he won around 3,654 races.

He was the second highest earner trainer next to Hall of Famer Wayne Lucas.

According to fellow Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, Frankel was a great, fierce competitor but has always been a good person. He said he was a big loss in sport and that he is definitely going to be missed.

Frankel was one of the many to have claimed that he never used steroids in his horses. He was a critic of the synthetic substances, especially during the height of the steroids scandal in the 2008 Triple Crown Series with the horse Big Brown.

He may seem to be tough outside but he is an animal lover who always put the welfare of the horses first. He would never hurt the horses by using steroids on them.
