Tackleberry Sharp in Mile Mile Drill

Tackleberry, victorious in three stakes this winter at Gulfstream Park, breezed four furlongs in 48.00 yesterday at Calder Race Course in what was his final official workout in the lead-up to the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap on May 30 at Belmont Park.

 

“The workout was real good and I was happy with it,” said the 4-year-old gelding’s owner/trainer, Luis Olivares. “He’ll ship to Belmont tomorrow morning.”

 

Olivares said he has been targeting the Met Mile prior to Tackleberry’s four-place finish in the Grade 3 Charles Town Classic on April 16.

 

“We decided before the Charles Town race that we wanted to go to the Met Mile,” said Olivares. “I was thinking about sending him to the Alysheba [at Churchill Downs on May 6], but the Met Mile would give him more time.”
