Bates Motel stood at, I believe, Gainesway in Kentucky his entire career and his last crop was born in 2004 (though he didn't have many, he was pensioned in 2003).

Anechoic (4yo g) (Mineshaft - Perfectly Quiet, by Quiet American). That's about as clever as they come. Entered at Mahoning Valley next Monday (11/26/18).
Got himself a pretty nifty record too! 7 firsts from 8 starts in 2018.

Wonder who Roy H is named for.
He is owned by Gary Hartunian of Rockingham Ranch, and I think they said he is named for his grandfather, Roy.
