For the second year, Anne Prince of Palmetto, Florida, has led PF Premo to an amateur world championship.

On November 15, Anne and “Premo” were named world champions in 2-year-old stallions at the 2013 AQHA World Championship Show.

“He’s homegrown!” Anne said in her exclusive Journal interview. “We bred and raised him. His full brother won the world here and (PF Premo) was just grand champion amateur stallion at the (All American Quarter Horse) Congress, so we’re on a roll with him and we’re pretty excited. He’s really special. We’re looking forward to him in the breeding shed. His brother produced a colt that has already done quite well, so we think he’s going to be a nice breeding horse.

PF Premo is a 2011 chestnut stallion by MH Supremo and out of Ima Credible Miss by Wincredible. His mother, a two-time world champion herself – once in Select and once in youth – has now produced two world champions, PF Premo and his full brother, PF Credibley Supreme, who was world champion open yearling stallion in 2011.

Premo was world champion in 2012 in amateur yearling stallions.

“I think what all the horsemen appreciate about him – whether you’re a judge or in the audience – is that he’s a very balanced colt and he’s very structurally correct,” Anne said. “This colt exemplifies that in my mind. Not only is he extremely balanced in the profile, he’s very correct front to rear. He tracks very well, (and he’s) pretty headed. He’s what we’re breeding for, I think.

“We’re proud of him.”

Anne and her husband, Chester, have entered Premo’s sire, MH Supremo, in the World Conformation Horse Association Get-Of-Sire Class, which is November 23.

“He won it last year, which was very humbling,” Anne said. “What an honor to be recognized that way. We haven’t decided yet (which horses will be in the class), but there will be three horses representing him in that pen.”

Anne was third in yearling stallions in the class just before 2-year-old stallions.

“I’m on Cloud 9 now,” she said. “He’s another colt that’s homegrown, and that makes it extra special.”

Next up after the World Show for the 20-year breeders is a return to Florida, Anne said.

“Then we go home and get ready for breeding and foaling season, which is one of my favorite times of year,” she said. “We have approximately 20 foals coming.”

Anne said she wanted to thank her trainer, AQHA Professional Horseman Dewey Smith of Palmetto, and his staff.

“I’d like to thank my husband, Chester Prince, for all his support throughout all this,” she said. “And I’d like to thank all the people who really appreciate that colt. I think he’s pretty special, and a lot of people appreciate him as well, so it’s a real honor to have him recognized by the crowd and the judges.”
