One more Westminster Winner of the X-Pert family was whelped on June 28, 1980. That was Ch.X-Pert Sligo's Tony. He was sired by Sligo. His dam was Ch.X-Pert Lady Charo, Black Nellie's daughter. Tony's conformation was very similar to Nellie's. Tony won Westminster on February 14, 1983. The judge was Anne Marie Moore. That was wonderful day for X-Pert's! Here is Tony's pedigree.
Clifford Ormsby: "Best American Staffordshire Terrier in the show. That Jim Rathbun, who called Mrs.Beers, he handled Tony to his championship and then he handled him to Best of Breed down in New York. He'd come over and he'd say,"I'll be over after him in about fifteen minutes. Come on Tony Balloney." Heh-heh-heh. He worked everything on Tony. He'd go out into that ring, in Madison Square Garden. He'd notice everything in that room. Everything was of interest to Tony. And right away, the judge looked at him. I said,"From the way he looked at him and from the way he was performing," I says, "Boy, he ought to win." And he did. When the judge wasn't looking, the handler went like this at me. ...He was quick on that. She never knew he'd made the motion. Oh, he was great! He was the best man. He charged me more money than the rest of 'em. What was that I tell 'ya? Twenty-five wasn't it? About five dollars more than anybody else. Except that, the trouble of it was, "if I don't charge the same, they're going to talk about me," handler says. He was good all right. Oh, he & Tony worked perfectly. He understood Tony and Tony understood him. And the judge was looking at the dog and looking at him and he says, "He's got it all right, she's got her eye on him." You can tell, you know. Once she turned her face and she couldn't see him, he went like this to me. It's a good advertisement, having a Staff like that, a winner at the Garden, you know."
