Born January 23, 1951 and a resident of Unionville, Pennsylvania, Michael Matz has a lifelong history with horses. A successful national and international riding career has earned Michael the distinction of being the all-time leading money winning rider and member of the Show jumping Millionaires Club. An Olympian and Pan American Games veteran, Matz has won the U.S. Equestrian Team (USET) Show Jumping Championship a record of times. He earned a Team Silver Medal in the Atlanta Games and was also honored by being asked to carry the US flag in the closing ceremonies that same year. Matz has turned his horsemanship to thoroughbreds in recent years, and has continued his success in his latest endeavors. He won the Kentucky Derby in 2006 with legendary Barbaro and the 2012 Belmont Stakes with Union Rags.
