Having earned his first win as a breeder this year thanks to Tresor de Chiron, Stéphane Boullais is proud to present his 2022 Haras du Chiron vintage collection, located in the Vendée, in the town of La Garnache , not far from the sea but also the racecourses of Challans and Machecoul.

Being a good native of Anjou, so it’s completely natural Stephane Boullais decided to leave the hustle and bustle of the capital, around the 2010s, after fifteen years in the pharmaceutical industry, to “settle down” in the countryside, and thereby satisfy his first passion: breed. The former rider, brother and brother-in-law of these former racers Bruno Boullais and Laurent Tilletand the brother of our former “Spell Minister”, Marie-Noelle Tilletactually put down his suitcase in a place called Le Chiron, in the town of La Garnache (Vendée) to develop his own racehorse breeding structure there: Haras du Chiron.
