Chatain, Grade 3 winner and Louisiana stallion, moves to Whispering Oaks


Multiple graded stakes winner Chatain will relocate to continue his stud career at Whispering Oaks Farm-Louisiana Stallion Station North in Carencro, La., as the property of a partnership.

The 10-year-old Forest Wildcat horse most recently stood at Holly Hill Farm in Benton, La. His 2014 fee at Whispering Oaks will be $1,500, payable when the foal stands and nurses.

Chatain won six of nine career starts, earning $276,330. He captured back-to-back editions of the Grade 3 Hal’s Hope Handicap in 2007 and 2008 at Gulfstream Park, establishing a track record of 1:33.87 for one mile in his first win.

From two crops of racing age, Chatain is the sire of 11 winners from 20 starters through Oct. 7, including stakes-placed Pardonmecomingthru.

“We are pleased to add Chatain to our stallion roster here at Whispering Oaks,” farm owner Carrol Castille said. “He was a very talented miler whose progeny have performed well at the track, and he will have every chance to succeed here alongside Closing Argument, Salute the Sarge, Sorcerer’s Stone and Unbridledsensation.”
