Hall of Fame trainer Bobby Frankel won two Grade I races on opposite coasts, on  different surfaces, both via disqualification. First, Senure was elevated to the  top spot in the United Nations Handicap, a turf race at Monmouth Park in  Oceanport, N.J., following the disqualification of With Anticipation for a bumping incident in midstretch.

Yeah, what a day that was. Believe he had the Midas Touch that day.
What a crazy double that was for Frankel, I dare to say that will never happen to another trainer again!
