Matt Koch graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture in 2000 and went directly into the Marine Corps as a 2nd Lt. Koch served 5 years as an Intelligence Officer deploying to Kosovo and Afghanistan. Upon his release from active duty he established Shawhan Place LLC with longtime horseman Ted Kuster. Shawhan Place is a full service boarding operation that handles everything from breeding, breaking, quarantine and sales. It was a natural fit to return to the Thoroughbred Industry after growing up on Claiborne Farm. Matt is a current member and past president of the Kentucky Thoroughbred Farm Managers Club. He lives in Paris with his wife, Kristen and three children, Taylor, Jack and Nate.
