Hall of Fame jockey Laffit Pincay Jr. won with his first mount in the United States, at  Arlington Park, aboard two-year-old filly Teacher's Art, owned and bred by Fred  W. Hooper. ~1966
 
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. Then, just 30 minutes later and on the same CBS  telecast, Aptitude was placed first after Futural was disqualified for a similar  infraction in the Hollywood Gold Cup, a Grade I dirt race at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, CA. ~2001

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!
