Fairy Chant (foaled 1937 in Kentucky) was an American Champion Thoroughbred filly racehorse. Her sire was the 1927 Belmont Stakes winner Chance Shot, a son of three-time Leading sire in North America Fair Play. Her dam was Star Fairy, a daughter of The Satrap, the 1926 English Champion Two-Year-Old Male Horse who was a son of the great The Tetrarch.

Fairy Chant was bred by William duPont, Jr., and raced under the banner of his Foxcatcher Farm for trainer, Richard E. Handlen. Her performances on the track earned her Champion honors in 1940 and 1941.

As a broodmare, her best known runner was the multiple stakes winner, Chevation.
