Warwick Farm trainer Joe Pride's plans for a two-state double with brothers Tiger Tees and Terravista proved a masterstroke on Saturday.
Pride wanted to keep them apart and set Tiger Tees for the Listed $100,000 Falvelon Quality (1200m) at Eagle Farm and Terravista for the Southern Cross Stakes (1200m) at Randwick.
The brothers, who are out of the mare Parfore, did the right thing with Terravista, who is by Captain Rio, and Tiger Tees, by Duwabi, both winning.
Pride remained in Sydney but intends to take Tiger Tees back to Warwick Farm although the gelding could return to Queensland for the winter carnival.
Tiger Tees, the $3.40 favourite, had not won since September 2012 but showed all his old fire to beat Adebisi ($31) by a nose with a half head to Steel Zip ($4.80) in third.
Winning jockey Glen Colless said Tiger Tees had been involved in a battle from the 1000m with Adebisi who came across from a wide alley.
"We had hoped to get an easy lead but Adebisi went with us," he said.
"We then got to Adebisi in the straight but he didn't want to go to the lead until he heard Steel Zip on his outside."
Trainer Desleigh Forster was thrilled with the run of Adebisi who had been out of form.
"We have been really tough on him including putting him over the hurdles. It seems to have worked," she said.
Earlier, smart three-year-old Casarati showed he would be a great winter back-up for stable star Teronado when he won the Fujitsu General Handicap (1800m).
Trainer Bruce Hill was in Melbourne with the Group One Australian Guineas (1600m) hope Teronado but part-owner Steve Foster said Casarati would be a more than handy horse over at least 2000m.
Meanwhile, apprentice Sam Payne, who rode Vintage Bon. was suspended for six meetings for causing interference to Diamond Dragon (Michael Cahill) at the 100m in the Heartkids Handicap.
