Cliff Berry, 50, wins his 4,000th career Thoroughbred race aboard Brown Okie in Saturday night's third race at Remington Park.

Jockey Cliff Berry won the 4,000th Thoroughbred race of his career Saturday night at Remington Park, when he guided Brown Okie to a front-running victory in the third race. Overall, the rider has won more than 4,100 races in a total that includes victories aboard Quarter Horses. He hit the 4,000 career-win plateau this past spring at Oaklawn Park.

Berry on Saturday night piloted Brown Okie ($3.60) to a 2 3/4-length win in an Oklahoma-bred allowance for Richter Family Trust and trainer Juan Padilla. It was the latest milestone for the rider, a 50-year-old native of Missouri who has won multiple titles at Oaklawn and ranks as the all-time leading jockey at both Remington and Lone Star Park.

Berry is the current leading jockey at Remington, where in December 2010 he tied a North American record for a rider winning with all of his mounts on a card when he went 7 for 7.
