Hustle has wow factor
FLASHY two-year-old filly Brooklyn Hustle booked herself a spot in the Blue Diamond Stakes with her amazing debut win at The Valley yesterday in the Buildsafe Plate (1000m).
Despite missing the start by two lengths and being well back before the turn, Brooklyn Hustle mowed down the front runner Oh So Rewarding.
She recorded a time of 58.79 seconds, running her last 200m in 10.96 seconds.
Trainer Jason Warren said the daughter of Starspangledbanner was the best two-yearold he had trained.
“I’m not going to say she’s an Alinghi but she’s a lot better than anything I’ve had,” Warren said.
Her jockey Beau Mertens said after the win that she had the wow factor.
Brooklyn Hustle ($5) defeated Yes Yes Yes ($6) by two lengths, with Oh So Rewarding ($8) a half length away third.
