Listen In (Sea The Stars ex Es Que), who closed a two-race juvenile campaign with a maiden score at Maisons-Laffitte Oct. 27, had placed in the Listed Prix Rose de Mai, Gr.3 Prix Penelope, Gr.2 Prix de Malleret and in the Gr.3 Prix de Psyche. Maintaining a watching brief in third initially, she improved one spot along the back straight and was pushed out once seizing control inside the final quarter of a mile to claim a belated first black-type rosette with plenty in hand. Listen In is a half to Gr.1 Hong Kong vase winner Dominant (Cacique), Gr.2 Lennox Stakes scorer Es Que Love (Clodovil) and Listed Prix Pelleas third and 2017 Royal Ascot Hunt Cup winner Zhui Feng. She is also kin to unraced 2yo filly Million Smiles (Galileo) owned and bred by Moyglare Stud with DK Weld and a yearling filly by Oasis Dream. Her second dam is Stakes-winning Gr.3 Prix Penelope third Bellona, who is a half-sister to Gr.3 Prix de Flore victress In Clover, herself the dam of Gr.1 Prix de l’Opera heroine We Are.
