GoHorseShow is sad to report the unexpected passing of PF Credibley Supreme who was awarded the 2011 Congress Grand Champion Stallion and World Champion Yearling Stallion at the AQHA World Show last year. The new up-and-coming stallion was looking to take over for his father, MH Supremo, as a leading breeding halter sire, but it appears that will no longer be a possibility.
The owners, Chester and Anne Prince of Palmetto, Florida, contacted GoHorseShow because they wanted us to share the news of his unfortunate passing. The two year-old stud apparently died due to an allergic reaction from antibiotics that he was taking from a hot nail he received from the farrier. The Prince's explained that they wanted to make sure he did not develop an infection, unfortunately, the vet was present but unable to reverse his severe reaction to the medication.
"He was doing marvelous and we bred quite a few mares to him this year, but I guess we had a stroke of bad luck," says owner Chester Prince. In 2011, his father, MH Supremo, had to be put down due to feet problems. This year is the last foal crop for MH Supremo, and his son will have his one and only foal crop next year.
"It is a sad day for our breeding program," say Anne Prince, who was very emotional on the phone. "He had that modern look, and I believe he had the potential to change our industry, and it is heartbreaking that he is now unable to make his mark on the industry."
Affectionately known as BJ, PF Credibley Supreme, won the 2011 Congress Open Yearling Stallions with Prince's resident halter trainer, Dewey Smith leading. This striking stallion was also first in the WCHA Yearling Futurity, won the Amateur Yearling Stallions across the board with Anne Prince, and stood Grand Champion Stallion beating the older more established stallions.
PF Credibley Supreme also went on to win the 2011 AQHA World Championship in the Yearling Stallions with Dewey Smith leading, beating out 17 other entries.
"He was truly one-of-a-kind, and I'm not sure there will ever be another one like him," says halter trainer Dewey Smith.
GoHorseShow would like to extend our condolences on this unexpected loss.
