Listen (NZ) Defends Selangor Gold Cup title

Listen (NZ) Defends Selangor Gold Cup title

Wednesday, Apr 19, 2017

Iffraaj gelding Listen (NZ), a $50,000 weanling purchase at the 2010 National Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale, recorded the eighth win of his career when he went back-to-back in the Listed Selangor Gold Cup (1600m) on Sunday.

Listen won the 220,000 Rgt. feature by half a length last year, and on Sunday he emphatically defended his title for owner BC Low and trainer Anna Scott. Ridden by Jai Shankar, Listen produced a powerful finish in the home straight to race past the favourite Volcanic General (Magnus) and win by three-quarters of a length.

Listen was bred by Archer Corporation Ltd and is out of the Centaine mare Daydream (NZ). The dam is a three-quarter sister to the stakes-winning Fleur De Chine (NZ) (Centaine), dam of stakes winners Tully Thunder (Thunder Gulch) and Sufficient (NZ) (Zabeel).

Put through the 2010 National Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale by Hallmark Stud, Listen was bought by Mulcaster Bloodstock for $50,000. He returned for the 2011 Ready to Run Sale, where he failed to meet his $60,000 reserve.

Listen has now had 34 starts for eight wins, 10 placings and prize-money earnings of 362,033 Rgt. and S$149,193.

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...
