    Not sure where you got all this...but I disagree with this "definition"...Ace - A pit dog of exceptional ability and skill, with more wins than a grand champion, over the best

    An Ace is a dog that has it all...don't necessarily have to win "more" than a GR CH....

    This was on the site before the site went back in time. I did not make up this stuff but I got it off the web some where. Just cant think where the point is, that might not be right but everything else is. It kind of sounded weird to me when I first read it but I'll do some more research and re-edit it.

    The site mentions the breeds Blue Paul and Red Smut as extinct breeds from Scotland. While it is true both came from Scotland they were not breeds. These were actual dogs. Both were pit bulls (not called pit bulls then) and research will show both dogs in the pedigree of modern day pit bulls. There were bloodlines from these dogs much like the Colby, Hemphill bloodlines. Instead of being named after the people who developed the bloodlines they were named from the most famous dogs of the bloodline. At that time it wasn't unusual. Blue Pauls were usually a blue or blue brindle color and the Red Smuts were usually red dogs.
    (http://www.moloss.com/brd/ab/b010/) Many breeds have descended from the Molosser. Take a look at them Mollosser Breeds (http://www.moloss.com/001/ptxt/breed.html)
    So, for those who say pits never had a blue gene factor................................

    An ace dog is a dog that wins without having to prove its gameness. Thats my definition.

    That is out of the Glossery, definitions of terms used in one of historical books of the American Pit Bull Terrier. Interesting to know which one eh! Agree or not Ace under old definitions was the top dog of it's breed. To have it all it must have proved itself among other dogs. If that were not the case we could call any dog we thought had " It All". We commonly now place the title of Ace on a dog that wins at Pulling. It once took much more than that to be called an Ace. Otherwise who is deamed worthy of desiding what dog is the Ace with out proof of such! I agree with the givin definitions. An "Ace" is worthy of being entered into the history books.

    PRODUCER OF RECORD

    The Producer of Record (POR) is a title which was set up to reflect the true nature of a dogs ability to produce. A great producer does one thing, and that is produce bulldogs consistently. It is the sole duty of the POR title to reflect the genetic ability of these bulldogs.

    These bulldogs are found and reflected upon in many ways, what the POR does, is unique. All aspect and accomplishments of their offspring, is weighed and then measured next to consistency. The POR system is very simple, and direct.

    All bulldogs will have their offspring's accomplishments listed in this fashion, with no exceptions.

    (during a show)
    A dog that curs............ -3.0 points
    A dog picked up game....... 1.0 point
    1st win.................... 1.0 point
    2nd win.................... 2.0 points
    3rd win.................... 3.0 points
    4th win.................... 4.0 points
    5th win or more............ 5.0 points

    Example.... A dog who has won 2, and picked up game on its 3rd would receive 1.0 point for its 1st, 2.0 points for its 2nd, and 1.0 point for being picked up game. Total = 4 points for its sire and dam.

    (producing producers)
    Every dog that produces a POR, they are to receive 6.0 points.

    Example.... A dog has produced 2 POR dogs, they are to receive 12.0 points.


    OVERALL

    Each point will only account for 2 dogs, 1.0 point = 2 offspring. (if a dog has 20 points, they can have no more than 40 offspring. If a dog has 50 points, they can have no more than 100 offspring)

    Any dog who does not have enough points to account for its offspring, does not deserve the POR title.

    Example.... A bitch that has 10.0 points, and 20 or less offspring, she has reached the POR title. If the same bitch has 21 offspring and only 10.0 points, she is not POR.

    There is no difference in the scoring for males and females, all are held to the same standard, and must not exceed the points to offspring ratio.
