Dam: Golden Sonata, by Mr. Prospector
Matuszak broke his maiden at first asking before turning in three lackluster performances including one in graded stakes. The colt then finished fourth in Aqueduct's Jerome Stakes (Grade 2) in his first start as a 3-year-old. He then placed in a pair of ungraded stakes in Maryland.
Matuszak is by leading sire Bernardini out of the graded stakes winning mare Golden Sonata. He is a full brother to stakes placed gelding Golden Triumph.
