Jason Warren and Dean Krongold are leaving nothing to chance in their bid to secure a Group 1 race with Brooklyn Hustle

The five-year-old daughter of Starspangledbanner will be lining up for her 11th start at the highest level when she runs in the Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville on Saturday. 

Brooklyn Hustle is yet to win, or place, in her 10 previous tries, howeve, her form continually warrants her a start at Group 1 level and she did finish fifth to Instant Celebrity in the race last year. 

Her most recent Group 1 start was when sixth in The Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill in March while at her last start she finished second in the inaugural running of The Discovery (1100m) at Sale on April 15. 

Warren said Brooklyn Hustle was sent to Adelaide on Thursday. 

"I just liked the idea of giving her that final gallop on the course proper on Tuesday and it also gives her the time to settle in," Warren said. 

"She's a good traveller but just giving her the extra few days is more beneficial. 

"She's going super and the Sale run was really good while she was pretty stiff in The Galaxy. 

"Third-up into our Grand Final I think is perfect." 

Brooklyn Hustle is likely to head on to Brisbane following Saturday's outing. 

Warren said if she was to win on Saturday, the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 11 and the Group 1 Tatt's Tiara (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 25 would be logical assignments. 

There is also the option of the Group 2 Dane Ripper (1300m) on the same day as the Stradbroke. 

"The Stradbroke looks like it will be a strong race this year, so it will be one of them, but I would say we'll chicken out and go to the Group 2," Warren said. 

"But if she can win in Adelaide, I would say we'll have to go to the big one in Brisbane for sure."
