Avdulla Hits The Limelight In Japan

Monday, 6th August 2018

Last season’s Sydney premiership-winning jockey Brenton Avdulla has continued his stellar form in the irons abroad, winning a 1200m feature sprint in Japan, reports racing.com. Avdulla is currently on a one month sojourn in Japan where he has a contract from the JRA, and on Saturday at Kokura, his mounts finished in the frame in three of his seven rides, incuding the Kyushu Sports Hai which ended in a blanket finish. Following the event Avdulla commented, “It's a big career highlight to win an international race. I was coming to Japan hopefully to try and ride one winner, so to win the feature on my first day riding, I'm very emotional.”
