Its Sshow Time ++
[ View Pedigree ]
It's Sshow Time++ captured five U.S. and Canadian National Top Ten Halter titles behind the campaign slogan "May the most horse win." It's cute and catchy, but primarily, it tells the truth about what this stallion and the Day Dream program represents. Its Sshow Time++ is a living embodiment of what defines a classic Arabian show horse. When "Sshow Time" entered the ring, either in the halter arena or in Country English Pleasure, he was one of the most naturally athletic, one of the most balanced and one of the most stunning Arabian stallions that one could imagine. Along with all his gifts of beauty and talent lies the greatest gift of all - a brave, kind, loving and willing heart. He has always given 100% to his trainers and his very fortunate owner, and anyone that has spent time in his presence knows that he is one of the most special horses that they have had in their lifetime.
Its Sshow Times greatest strength is that he has few weaknesses. There are very few horses that can offer so many diverse and desirable traits to the breed and when you consider his incredible pedigree of champions you can see that from each important line he has gathered the most notable traits, and it shows in his fantastic foals.
There are not many horses that possess a better body or straighter legs. His neck is high-set, clean and carried perfectly, in hand and under saddle. He is loaded with intelligence, ambition and charisma and he exudes a dramatic presence that gives him all the flair one could desire. Sshow Time also has a beautiful face, great ears, fine dry skin and absolutely huge eyes, and when he is in motion he is an unforgettable vision.
Born in 1995, Its Sshow Time++ has lived in the national halter spotlight since his national debut as a U.S. National Top Ten Heritage Yearling Colt with Steve Heathcott. As a three year old colt, handler Mike Neal came on board and formed a fantastic partnership with this beautiful bay stallion that would take them to Canadian and U.S. Futurity Top Ten honors in that year, fantastic wins at Scottsdale the following year and a total of five Regional Championships. They finished their great run with yet another pair of Top Ten victories at Canada and U.S. in the Open Stallions. These were the years of a 5 judge panel, and I love the ideal that 25 judges agreed that this young stallion was getting the top nods at 3 different ages and over 5 years. That shows that Its Sshow Time started well and grew up well which is not always the case with our halter horses.
Its Sshow Time and his son Signifikaynce
From the halter ring, Sshow Time began his notable career in Country English Pleasure with trainer Rich Doran. Just one year from showing at halter in the national arena, he was back at nationals as a finalist in the Country English Pleasure class. This was a great testimony to both horse and trainer.
Its Sshow Time rose rapidly to become one of the top horses in the division. In his next few seasons he was named Region 3 Champion and again top 16 at the U.S. Nationals. Later, with Jim Lowe, he was the Region 7 Reserve Champion, Pacific Slopes Champion and went on to amass many more titles and again made the final cut at U.S. Nationals. A huge heart, lots of ambition, action, balance, wonderful hocks and he truly loves the show ring that is what makes him such a great winner.
Its Sshow Time's progeny are emulating their sire's great structure, beauty and athletic ability. His 2004 chestnut colt, the magnificent Signifikaynce (out of the multi-National Champion mare, Aristokayte) won the coveted 2005 U.S. National Reserve Champion Yearling Colt title and the very first Scottsdale Signature Stallion Auction Colt Championship, two of the halter world's most acclaimed honors. His daughter, Spring Time DDA (out of Kizz Me Kayte) captured two of the big awards at the Sport Horse Nationals. She was the 2004 U.S. National Champion Jumper and she also handily won the Jumper Mini-Prix, which is an open class with both half-Arabs and purebreds showing. This wonderful, and never to be forgotten, bay mare also was a 2002 Scottsdale Top Ten mare (mares of 1998) and she later went on to win the Gambler's Choice Jumper Open Class in Scottsdale in a thrilling and very fast exhibition. Halter and performance winners, is that not what a great stallion should produce?
Its Sshow Time's mark as a great show horse sire is sure to surpass even his own extraordinary accomplishments in the ring. His ability to unite athleticism and extreme type in his get is a rare feat. It is evident, judging by the quality and promise of each foal crop, that he is quickly becoming one of the breed's most important sires.
