Show to Win is a 17+ hand buckskin Jockey Club Thoroughbred stallion by the black hunter stallion Tuxedo (registered as RJ's Harri) and out of a buckskin mare by the palomino FEI dressage sire Glitter Please

Winner is a short coupled, leggy, stallion with a powerful build. He does not have the weak loin area seen in many Thoroughbreds, and has a deep chest and a very free shoulder. He has a nicely arching neck and a beautiful yet masculine head, with with width between the eyes and a deep jowl, tapering to a fine muzzle. He has good bone and nice hard feet. He is a beautiful mover, and his foals inherit his long sweeping stride. He adds height and his offspring are very substantial and powerful. Many people, upon seeing him, state that he is the most beautiful Thoroughbred they've ever seen. He is the only son of Tuxedo available at stud. Out of the 2 lines of dilute Thoroughbreds, Glitter Please is harder to find. Winner is an excellent cross on Milkie line mares, (he has NO Milkie blood), and there is no increase in the stud fee for single or double dilute mares.

Show to Win can produce buckskin, smoky black, bay, or black offspring. He has not yet been tested to see if he carries a gene for chestnut, but to date he has not produced any chestnut foals, even out of chestnut mares.

RJ's Harri, or Tuxedo, raced 25 times before retiring to become a hunter sire. He unfortunately died young, before siring many offspring. I have never run across anyone who's seen him in the flesh, that wasn't Wowed by him. He was 17.2, jet black, with four stockings. Tuxedo's sire, Harriman, was a close relative to the famous stallion Lord Avie. Both are sired by Lord Gaylord, and Lord Avie is out of Avie, while Harriman was out of Avie's daughter, Averell. Lord Avie is the damsire of at least one American TB stallion who is approved in Germany, and has sired several impressive jumpers in the US. He's also the sire of the damsire of the Advanced eventing sire Rather Well. Lord Gaylord is one of Sir Gaylord's best sons for producing sporthorses, especially hunter/jumpers, but he also was a noted sire of foxhunters, turf horses, and steeplechasers. His dam is by Ambiorix, who was approved for warmblood breeding in Europe, and out of a mare by Spy Song. Spy Song was the sire of several GP jumpers, the grandsire of USET jumper Number One Spy, and also of Champion steeplechaser Bon Nouvel, Champion Hunter Sorting Spirit, the damsire of Champion Hunter Magic Parade, and in the pedigrees of many others. Spy Song's daughters have produced many European sport horses (mostly in eventing). He is especially known for soundness.

Harriman's dam is by Restless Native. Considered by many to be the absolute BEST way to get the Native Dancer jumping ability without the tendency for unsoundness, Restless Native's offspring seem to run and run and run--many with more than 50 starts, and one with an unheard of 213 starts!!! His daughters also produce sound durable runners. Restless Native is close up in the pedigree of many International competitors, the best known is probably internationally ranked 4* eventer Rampant Lion. He has other descendants who've competed in the European Championships, World Cup, WEG, etc. Tuxedo's damsire was by Forward Pass, who was sired by On-and-On (good source of jump). She is linebred to Heliopolis, another rich source of jump, and she also brings in Bull Lea, Whirlaway, and Eight Thirty--all on the first page of Tuxedo's pedigree!
Show To Win's dam is Lissa's Gold Legacy, a well bred for sport mare. She is by the illustrious Glitter Please, who showed to Intermediare II in dressage and was schooled in all the Grand Prix movements. Glitter Please was a 16.3 hand palomino stallion who did little breeding until he retired from competition, as a result his line is harder to find than the other dilute Thoroughbred line, which stems from Milkie. In addition to his performance career, Glitter Please brings the good sporthorse blood of Prince John, Tom Fool, and Blenheim to the table. Lissa's dam is a granddaughter of Cannonade, who was also the grandsire of Olympic Gold winner Debat d'Estruval, and the great grandsire of 3* horse Parker. Cannonade's sire is Bold Bidder, one of the best names to see in a sport pedigree--especially with regards to eventing. He was the grandsire of A Fine Romance, who has in turn sired multiple upper level eventers. Bold Bidder also sired Spectacular Bid--sire of Mytens and grandsire of Mighty Magic, sire of Auction Ring who is in the pedigree of Olympic horses Winsome Adante and Withcote Nellie, as well as the stallion Mount Hagen, grandsire of a 4* horse, Mostly Mischief, and an Italian GP jumper, Ottobre di San Patriginano, along with a couple of others who have gotten 1 and 2* top ten horses. Lissa's sire's damsire is Sensitivo, who sired Sensitive Lady, dam of 2 European stallions, one of which, Sensitive Prince, is the damsire of 4* eventer Twizzel, and the other, Harlow, sired an up and coming 2* eventer. Sensitivo's sire, Sideral, is in the pedigree of other upper level eventers. The rest of Lissa's damline brings in What A Pleasure and Double Jay, among other lines known for soundness and jumping ability.
