The "winometer" ticked over to 23 when three-year-old Camora saluted for Desleigh Forster at Doomben on Saturday.
That's the number of wins Forster has trained from her last 50 starters when Camora cruised to a 2-1/2 length win in the Rhino Water Tanks Handicap (1600m).
Forster is now hoping her golden run continues as she chases her first Group One win of her career with Adebisi in Saturday's Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield. Forster has only a small team in work at Eagle Farm headquarters but arguably holds the bragging rights to having the best strike rate of any trainer in the country.
Camora, who scored a runaway win on debut at Caloundra earlier this month, could now be on the path to better things during the winter carnival if the gelding pleases Forster next start.
"He's a typical Stromberg Carlson whose breed all want to get over ground and he'll stay all day," Forster said.
"I'm hoping to take him through the grades and he'll have his next start in two weeks over 1500 metres.
"If he shows he'll get over ground he may even make a Queensland Derby horse later on."
While Adebisi has thrived in Melbourne since scoring a brilliant win in the G3 Rubiton Stakes at Caulfield on February 9, Forster is eyeing the Brisbane winter carnival with other members of her team.
Forster is excited about her winter prospects with stablemates Poste Restante, Easy Running, Trilione and Dream 'n Ignite who all recently returned to work to prepare for the winter.
"I've got a good team and I'm looking forward to the winter but it's a long way off yet," she said.
