For longtime breeders Anne and Chester Prince of Palmetto, Florida, the 2011 AQHA World Championship Show has been a vindication of their breeding program.
On November 19, their homebred PF Credibley Supreme won the world championship in yearling stallions.
PF Credibley Supreme is a sorrel by MH Supremo and out of Ima Credible Miss by Wincredible.
“He was grand stud at the (All American Quarter Horse) Congress, unanimous, and then he came here and won, so he’s a very phenomenal individual,” says AQHA Professional Horseman Dewey Smith of Palmetto, Florida, who led the horse to the win and has had his training from the beginning. “We raised him, and hopefully he’ll stay in our breeding program. He’s such a kind horse. For a yearling stallion, he doesn’t do anything wrong. He’s such an elegant individual. He’s got a lot of class and charisma to him. That’s the difference in him and the other horses.”

In addition to Congress wins, Anne showed the horse in the World Conformation Horse Association Stretch Bradley Non-Pro Halter Stakes to a first-place finish. She told the Journal that PF Credibley Supreme hit the ground a show horse.
“He’s a show horse,” she said in October. “He’s been that way since he was on his mama’s side and he’d stand out in the pen. We have pictures of him out in the field just set up looking like he did in front of the line today. He’s just a show horse.”
“He gets really excited when you ask him to go in the pen, and when you ask him to stand and show, he really tries,” Dewey says. “He gives you everything he’s got.”
