After all the amateur stallion halter classes were placed and the winners were selected to come back for Grand and Reserve, the judges determined Ann Prince’s PF Premo to be the most outstanding stallion specimen in the class today. The Reserve Grand Champion was Morgan Brehm with Kayotic.

“This is a full brother to the one that won the Congress in the Open division here two years ago, PF Credibly Supreme,” Ann Prince says. “He is another that we obviously raised. He won his yearling class last year and was the Amateur Reserve Grand Champion.”

“He’s a really kind colt. I’ve really enjoyed showing him. He’s very easy to show. Dewey [Smith] has done a really good job of fitting and conditioning him.”

In order to qualify for Grand and Reserve today, “Premo” was named the Congress Champion in Amateur 2-Year-Old Stallions. Given that Premo was named the Reserve Grand Champion Amateur Stallion in 2012, Prince was definitely hungry for that Grand Champion title today.

“Premo has matured a lot since last year,” Prince says. “He is a really balanced colt. You have to appreciate his stud qualities, like his super-pretty head and neck. He is very well-behaved. He is a neat colt.”

Like the Prince’s similarly bred stallions that have come before Premo, this 2-year-old is already showing future sire potential.

“We certainly hope [he will have a breeding future],” she says. “His full brother’s first foal crop is on the ground this year, and the colt that was second in the Open and Amateur Weanling Colts is by him. So, that’s actually his nephew.”

In addition to winning Grand Champion Amateur Stallion with Premo, Prince also won the Limited division of the Open Weanling Fillies with PF One Hot Chrome.

“I won the Limited Open with my filly out of Chromed Up’s first foal crop,” she says. “We had three Chrome babies in the Open that were being exhibited by amateurs, and they were all three top five in the Limited! We were really proud of that, because that was a big deep filly class.”

A big congratulations goes to Chester and Ann Prince and Dewey Smith on this exciting win today at the Congress.
