OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ On a day thoroughbred trainer Donnie Von Hemel is in Kentucky, he wins three races at Remington Park to close the gap in the track's trainers' standings.

Von Hemel's three wins Saturday night gave him 36 for the current Remington Park thoroughbred meet, which ends a 68-day run Tuesday.

He won with Do Not Disturb in the sixth race, Shop Again in the ninth race and Glitter and Glamor in the 10th race.

Von Hemel trails Scott Blasi, who has 38 wins. Von Hemel is seeking his 12th training title at Remington Park while Blasi is going for his first.

There are 20 more races scheduled at Remington Park before the meet ends. Both Von Hemel and Blasi have eight horses entered in those races.

Von Hemel spent Saturday in Louisville, where his 2-year-old Going Ballistic finished fourth in a graded-stakes race at Churchill Downs.
