The late Robert J. “Bobby” Frankel is one of the best trainers of Thoroughbred racehorses ever, with his achievements recognized by his induction in 1995 into the National Museum of Racing & Hall of Fame.  He won 3,654 races from 17,657 starts for a win percentage of 20.6%; five Eclipse Awards as trainer of the year; and a litany of Grade 1 races. 

Bobby Frankel’s daughter Bethenny Frankel is, in her own way, also an immense winner via humanitarian deeds.

Bethenny is a successful serial entrepreneur and longtime television reality-show personality.  Since the Russian Army invaded the Ukraine, her BStrong Foundation has been raising money to alleviate the suffering cruelly inflicted on the Ukrainian people (the Foundation ‘s mission is “Providing Emergency Assistance to People in Crisis”). At this writing, the amount donated amounts to a remarkable $25 million.  About $15 million of this is earmarked for food, medical, and other necessities and $10 million for relocation of refugees. 

Bobby Frankel would no doubt rightly be proud of and grateful for his daughter’s humanitarian efforts through the BStrong Foundation, with Ukrainian relief the latest example.  $25 million is a huge amount of money to raise in such a short period of time…or any period of time.  Like her father on the racetrack, Bethenny is a winner, except her winning comes from helping people who are in desperate need through no fault of their own.
