VETERAN horseman Terry Lowe has joined up-and-coming Heversham Park Farm in Gauteng as a consultant.
Japhta Kghaphola, the recipient of the First Heversham Park Equine Management Mentorship for previously disadvantaged individuals, has been appointed as Farm Manager.
Lowe, who hails from a racing family, retired from training recently after a career spanning over 40 years which included a successful US stint. He’d also served as Stipendiary Steward in KZN and Gauteng, while his breeding interests with various imported stallions goes back about as long as his training career.
Lowe commented: “I gave up training recently due to my main patron passing away, and another immigrating to the USA. Horses are my life, working with them is what I do and when I was offered this opportunity to help Nigel with stud management, foaling and the like, it was ideal for me.
“Nigel has invested heavily in the farm and Gauteng as a breeding region and this beautiful stud has all the potential in the world. There are a few things we’ll attend to and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
Said Riley: “Terry and I have been friends forever and I am delighted to have someone of his calibre as a horseman and an individual on our team. Well done also to Japhta for making the progress we expected from him.”
