BALTIMORE (AP) —  The Maryland Jockey Club says Nancy Alberts, owner, trainer and breeder for 2002 Preakness runner-up Magic Weisner, has died.

Alberts, 65, lived in Sykesville and died Tuesday in a D.C. hospital after suffering a stroke last month.

Alberts, the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association 2002 trainer of the year, was one of 13 female conditioners to saddle a Preakness Stakes starter.

Alberts finished with 161 winners with earnings of $3 million, according to Equibase. Her career began in 1976. Her final runner, Ameri Weber, finished sixth in the Pimlico opener on April 23.

Her son, Will Alberts, said his mother was just proud to be a horseman.
