Classic-winning trainer switches his attention to bloodstock
Lowe trained four winners of the German 1,000 Guineas
Andreas Lowe, who won five Group 1 races as a trainer in Germany, handed his licence to Andreas Suborics at the start of 2017 and has started a new venture as a bloodstock agent under the business name Andreas Lowe Thoroughbred Services.
Lowe said on his new website www.vollblutservice.de: "With my new company I offer my services in all threads of thoroughbred training and breeding.
"Mainly I will act as a thoroughbred agent as my activities at the sales are a very successful passion of mine."
As a trainer, Lowe won 1,163 races on the Flat and 25 over jumps, and among those victories were five at the highest level, and seven victories in the German Classics.
His most notable achievements as a trainer include winning the German Oaks with Silvester Lady and Mystic Lips, winning the German 1,000 Guineas four times - most recently with Lips Poison in 2011 - and landing the German 2,000 Guineas with Lucky Lion in 2014.
Both Lucky Lion and Amaron won Group 1 races for Lowe, and have since been been retired to stud.
Lucky Lion was out of the German 1,000 Guineas Lips Arrow, also trained by Lowe, and won the German 2,000 Guineas and was second in the German Derby.
Amaron, a Group 1 winner in Italy, was bought at the Tattersalls December Yearling Sale for 105,000gns by Lowe for Winterhauch Stable in 2010.
