AdebisiGlenn Davis    November 14, 2012
Desleigh Forster's continued her impressive strike when Adebisi defied a wet track to win in his comeback at Eagle Farm last Saturday.
Adebisi's victory was the 11th winner for Forster from her previous 17 starters.
Adebisi, who was having his first start since failing in the G3 Healy Stakes at Eagle Farm in June, cruised to a decisive three lengths win in the Salt Design Handicap (1000m).
Forster was pleasantly surprised with the ease of Adebisi's win considering he was never comfortably on the heavy track.
"He was quite impressive considering he didn't handle the wet conditions at all," Forster said.
"We've been working on him in his work trying to get him to switch off in his races."
Forster is now eyeing the G3 George Moore Stakes(1200m) at Eagle Farm next month.
The son of Shovhog gave Forster the biggest win of her career when he claimed last year's George Moore Stakes.
Forster pulled the right reign by choosing to stay at home for Adebisi's return which also continued his great first-up strike rate.
"I was going to send him to Sydney for a 1200-metre race but we thought Brisbane was the better option when the nominations looked a little light on at the start of last week," Forster said.
Jockey Michael Cahill reported Adebisi was never comfortably on the heavy ground but it didn't stop him from lauding the five-year-old's effort.
Adebisi has an outstanding first-up record and has now won four of his seven starts when fresh.
He's won three of his six starts on slow tracks and now had one win from three attempts in heavy going.
