estijaab   240318                    3061The Hawkes Racing-trained Estijaab gave Brenton Avdulla his biggest win in the saddle when leading all of the way to claim the $3.5 million Group I Longines Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

Avdulla, 27, moved to Sydney from Victoria to try his luck as an apprentice in 2009 and over the past 10 years he focused on “consistency” and now is firmly entrenched among the top few riders in one of the most competitive jockeys’ rooms in the world.

“Gai Waterhouse didn't have an apprentice at the time so when I got her call I took it as a chance to get to Sydney for a couple of months and see what might happen,” Avdulla said.
