Miss Gorgeous was probably as good a daughter as Tell You Why ever produced - some feat. She was on the 1970 All American Team and after being sold for $14,000 for breeding became the only dam ever to throw three different All Americans. Miss Gorgeous dam was Miss Dily Mar. She won the 1963 Mile High Derby and produced a string of outstanding perofrmers. Interestingly, Miss Dilly Mar was by a great racer of the late 1950s who, like his great grand son also struggled to push the sale past 64 pounds.

Miss Gorgeous sire Tell You Why was a very successful stud dog, he was an export from Australia to America. Tell you Why won a Harold Park Classic in Australia and then became probably the most important sire in America's greyhound racing history. He was champion sire 1967 and 1968. His sons included Cactus Lonesome (Champion sire 1972/73/74), Westy Whizzer (three times All American, grandsire of Downing and Sail On II) and Hoefer (sire of Onie Jones and Kelly Jones, who sired K's Flak, Unruly, PKs Jet, Placid Ace etc etc.)

Miss Gorgeous threw dogs as Highway Robber, that himself became an excellent stud dog with offspring including Hail The Chef, Beau Boogie and Milo Tate.
Cincinnati Red, Miss Friend and prolific winners Radar Look, a stakes winner was the grand dam of America´s top brood in 1990 Meter Maid.

A repeated mating in November 1974 produced the great Rooster Cogburn, probably the fastest of all the Miss Gorgeous offspring. On the trak Rooster won a Sheehan Classic and took on Downing in a sires of match races. He was also voted an All American. He later became an excellent sire throwing the lines of OK Troy and Hondo Monopoly. Both later became top 10 sires. Rooster Cogburn´s comrades included Gambling Fever (exported to Ireland), Fever produced many fine stayers, including Exile Energy and Going For Glory. Their sister Angola threw Wincarnis, another sister Raing Fever is the grand dam of Hound City.
