Richter Scalehas been relocated from Richland Hills Farm in Kentucky to Chad White Farm near Benton, La. He will stand for $2,500.

Richter Scale, by Habitony--Devine Pet, by Bel Bolide will continue to be owned by Nathan Fox of Richland Hills and Richard Kaster under a lease arrangement with Chad White, who has agreed to support the stallion with 20-25 of his own mares.

"This is a good fit for a proven stallion like Richter Scale," said Fox."This horse has been very good to us, and we know he will have a chance for further success as a part of the lucrative Louisiana-bred program."

"We welcome Richter Scale to Louisiana," said White."He has settled in well and we look forward to offering him to Louisiana breeders as well as sending many of our own mares to him."

Richter Scale won 12 of 25 starts and earned $1,139,958. He scored wins in eight graded stakes, his big score coming in the Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash (gr. I).

The 14-year-old horse, bred in California by Clydene Boots, is the sire of four stakes winners. He has stood his entire career to date at Richland Hills.
