Jimmy Murphy, a longtime Maryland trainer who registered more than 100 stakes victories, died on Saturday. He was 82.

The same day, Murphy finished second in the Daniel Van Clief Stakes at Colonial Downs with Frisky Thunder. Last June, Frisky Thunder (pcitured far right) provided the final two stakes wins of Murphy’s 44-year career.

A native of Milwaukee, Murphy trained 1,226 winners who earned $23,164,336 since 1976, the first year for which individual statistics are available on Equineline.com.

Murphy scored two Grade 1 wins four years apart with Bemo, a gelding bred and owned by Hickory Tree Farm. Bemo won the 1973 American Derby Gr. 1, ’75 Dixie Handicap Gr.2, and ’77 United Nations Handicap Gr.1.

Bring Out the Band, another Hickory Tree homebred, earned four graded stakes wins for Murphy, including the 1977 Acorn Stakes Gr.1 by 3 1/2 lengths.

Murphy also won the 1982 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes Gr.2 with Delicate, ‘89 Lexington Stakes Gr. 2 with Notation, and 1994 Pimlico Distaff Handicap Gr.3 with Double Sixes and the Miss Preakness Stakes (then ungraded) with Foolish Kisses in the same week.

More recently, Murphy saddled the first winner over the new Laurel Park main track in January 2005. He was the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association’s trainer of the year in 2006.

Visitation is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT on Tuesday at Donaldson Funeral Home in Laurel. The graveside service will be conducted on Wednesday at noon at Union Cemetery, 3001 Spencerville Road/Route 198, Burtonsville, Maryland.
