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.

Godolphin also has Ghostly (Lonhro x Seances).
Ghostwatch won, by the way.

He has big horseshoes to fill. The original Prove It was a West Coast star in the early '60s and a good sire as well, IIRC.
