Matt has over 20 years of experience working in the thoroughbred breeding industry, on leading farms in New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and France. He has worked in all aspects of the breeding farm but his particular passion is for mares and foals, especially pedigree analysis for rebreeding. He prides himself in providing excellent customer service.
In 2016, Matt and Claire saw an opportunity to develop a quality small farm of their own in Avenel, Victoria and jumped at the chance, establishing Ellora Stud.
