Adebisi Primed For 2013 Oakleigh Plate – Caulfield Preview

February 12th, 2013

Adebesi will be out to claim his first Group 1 victory when he runs in the Oakeigh Plate at Caulfield Racecourse on February 23, 2013.

The five-year-old won the Listed Razor Sharp Quality Handicap at Warwick Farm Racecourse on December 22, 2013, before claiming victory in the Group 3 Rubiton Stakes last start.

Adebisi has won 10 of his 33 race starts and has earned more than $647,000 in prize money during his career.

The Shovhog gelding is trained by Desleigh Forster at Eagle Farm and will be having just his second start in Melbourne in the 2013 Oakeigh Plate.

Forster is confident that Adebisi has what it takes to win the 2013 Oakleigh Plate next weekend.

”He’s tough and brave, he’s a Queenslander, what do you expect,” Forster said after his Rubiton Stakes win.

“He will stay on now and go for the Oakleigh Plate, that was the main aim.

”This was just to give him a run around Caulfield and get him used to it.”

Last year’s winner, fellow Queenslander Woorim, is also on target to defend his title in the 2013 Oakleigh Plate according to trainer Robert Heathcote.

“We’ve given him a long spell and with horses of his age when they have injuries it can be a blessing to have that time off,” Heathcote said.

“It gives them rehabilitation time as well for other problems and this horse has had hoof issues all his life but his feet are as healthy as we’ve had them in twelve months.”

Woorim has won 11 of his 42 race starts and has earned more than $1.02 million in prize money.
