Trainer Nancy Alberts Dies at 65

Alberts was the trainer, owner, breeder and exercise rider for 2002 Preakness Stakes (Grade 1) runner-up Magic Weisner. The Maryland-bred gelding just missed winning Maryland's signature race at odds of 45-1, rallying from far back to finish just three-quarters of a length behind War Emblem.
