How did their success story start? Back in 1998, Chester visited long-time friend and fellow horseman Lazzaro Mata to look at his horses. While visiting, a mare by the name of Whisper of Flowers began to foal and Chester stayed until the new sorrel stud colt was born. Upon returning home, Anne recalls how impressed Chester was with the new baby named MH Supremo. MH Supremo went on to have a very successful show career, being crowned Reserve World Champion in 2003 and then becoming a multiple World and Congress Champion halter sire.
The Princes always thought that MH Supremo had the special look, so when they were in the market for an N/N stallion, he was an easy choice for them. As an added bonus, they soon found out that In addition to his ability to pass on his good looks and great halter conformation, MH Supremo also passed on his great mind and calm disposition.
“MH Supremo was one of the most laidback breeding horses I’ve ever been around, and he passed that calm disposition on to his babies,” Anne said.
MH Supremo left an indelible mark on the halter-horse industry, and especially the bloodlines perpetuated by Prince Farm. A great specimen in his own right, MH Supremo proved his might by siring numerous AQHA world and All American Quarter Horse Congress champions. His dominance as a sire is perhaps best summed up, though, by a win in the inaugural World Conformation Horse Association Get-of-Sire class at the 2012 AQHA World Championship Show, just months after his death in 2011. He was represented in the Get-of-Sire class by PF Premo (out of Ima Credible Miss by Wincredible), PF Amazing (out of Two Thousand Kisses by Playgirls Conclusion) and Sacreds Supreme (out of Sacred Sierra by Sierra Te).
Fortunately, Prince Farm had two of MH Supremo’s sons to continue with; PF Premo and Chromed Up.
Chromed Up is a 2008 model by MH Supremo and out of AQHA world champion Grace N Glamour by Touchdown Kid. Chromed Up earned reserve championships at the AQHA World Show and Congress in 2011, the same year he won the AQHA amateur stallion high-point title. Since then, Chromed Up has gone on to sire multiple Congress champions.
Over the past several years, PF Premo has kept the Princes in the winners circle show after show. A homebred 2011 stallion by MH Supremo and out of Ima Credible Miss by Wincredible, PF Premo swept the 3-year-old colts AQHA world championships in 2014, winning Select with Chester at the shank, amateur with Anne and open with AQHA Professional Horseman Dewey Smith. PF Premo had also won world and reserve world titles as a 2-year-old and yearling, and was named the 2013 Congress grand-champion amateur stallion and the unanimous 2014 Congress grand champion open and amateur stallion.
Of note, PF Premo is a full brother to the late great stallion PF Credibley Supreme, who as a yearling made history by unanimously being crowned the 2011 All American Quarter Horse Congress Grand Champion Open Stallion and subsequently winning the 2011 AQHA World Champion Open Yearling Stallion.
Having built a most impressive halter-horse breeding and showing operation with Prince Farm LLC over the course of 30 years, Anne & Chester Prince started to think about downsizing and transitioning. So, in the spring of 2015, they sold stallions PF Premo and Chromed Up plus the majority of Prince Farm’s broodmares and foals to Bushy Park Farm Quarter Horses in Aubrey, Texas.
“My hope is the two stallions will carry on the MH Supremo legacy,” Anne Prince said. “Chester and I will enjoy showing our performance horses, as well as a few halter babies. “It is hard to let go of a 30-year breeding program, yet it feels right to downsize while we were on top. The stallions will carry on for us,” Anne adds.
