At Ascot in Western Australia, Mungrup Stud-based stakes-winning & Gr1-placed stallion Danehill Express (Danehill-Savana City, by New Regent) added a black-type success when talented 3YO gelding Properantes (Danehill Express-Scala's Quest, by Marooned) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Colin Webster in the $100,000 Listed Raconteur Stakes (1500m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO geldings Muskets At Dawn (Mutawaajid-Ashraqat, by Anabaa) & The Londoner (Commands-Clementine, by Octagonal). This was the first stakes victory for Properantes who took his record to 3 wins and 3 placings from 6 starts for $111,650 earnings. Properantes was a $20,000 purchase by his trainer Colin Webster at the 2013 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale from the draft of Mungrup Stud.
