Cranbourne trainer Allison Sheehan snared her first city winner and ended the unbeaten run of Khalifa when Tackleberry triumphed at Sandown on Wednesday.

Tackleberry ($7.50) defeated the Mark Kavanagh-trained Khalifa ($2.45 fav) by three-quarters of a length in the Catanach’s Jewellers Handicap (1200m) with Caulfield Guineas Prelude runner-up Let Go Lenni ($4.40) third.

Sheehan is a rising talent in the training ranks with an increasing stable and she took Tackleberry to Sandown on the back of two straight wins at Traralgon.

She says she now plans to proceed “onwards and upwards” and is eyeing off a Moonee Valley start in the future for her four-year-old gelding.

“I would quite like to get him at Moonee Valley where he could pinch a break and make it hard for the backmarkers,” she said.

Sheehan said she was hoping for a decent result at Sandown following a disappointing first-up ninth at Mornington last month.

“We just wanted a confidence-booster after a bit of a disappointing run first-up, which looked like a good form race,” Sheehan said.

“But certainly his confidence is sky-high now and hopefully he’ll go on with it.”

Tackleberry is the latest horse to give Sheehan success with the progeny of the mare Danto.

“He’s the fifth horse I’ve had out of the mare and I think that’s the 12th win the mare’s produced,” she said.

Jockey Daniel Moor described Tackleberry’s win as his best to date.

“I thought it was probably the most progressive race of the day with the likes of Khalifa and a few others,” Moor said.

“Let Go Lenni had really good form leading into this and I thought he would have had to be at his best today.

“But today was probably his best win because he just relaxed so lovely in front, which he did the last start as well.”

Tackleberry was joint topweight with Khalifa, both carrying 60kg.

“He rolls along and really carries his weight and against the really progressive horses I thought it was a very solid effort,” Moor said.
