OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Jockey Cliff Berry wins three races at Remington Park, leaving the track's top rider just three shy of 3,000 wins for his career.

Berry's total wins include those on thoroughbreds, quarter horses, paints and appaloosas.

The rider from Jones won Tuesday night aboard Commanche Feather in the first race, Red Sunset in the third and Suzy True in the ninth.

Berry's 30 wins during Remington Park's current thoroughbred meet are tops among jockeys at the track.

Rubiano's Twin won the feature, a $28,900 allowance race for Oklahoma breds.

The 3-year-old ridden by Quincy Hamilton and trained by Roger Engel led from start to finish. He won the 1-and-1/16-mile turf race in 1 minute, 43.40 seconds. He beat Presto Ridge by 2-and-1/4 lengths.
