I really do hope you look for good conformation and temperment first.
However with that said - as the original question of color - if you find a horse that is homozygous black - the foal will be black based despite the chestnut mare. Now if the mare carries for bay you may end up with bay or black.
If you breed to a perlino or cremello or smokey cream (black with 2 creams) the resulting foal will either be palomino, buckskin or smokey black. So there are a couple options for you in your search.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
