Lowe to Handle Media Functions for Team Valor

Team Valor International has hired Jeff Lowe to handle its media functions.

Jeff Lowe, a writer for Thoroughbred Times since 2002, has been hired by Team Valor International to handle media-related activities, Team Valor president Barry Irwin said June 11.

Lowe, 33, of Lexington, has been the lead Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup writer for the weekly magazine and website. He will handle the Team Valor newsletter, website, and other related functions.

“I am changing my own job description and that of my wife Kathleen’s as well,” Irwin said in a statement. “I love writing the Insiders’ Bulletin for our clients, but the time has come for me to start writing some books. I cannot do both, because it is too demanding.

“Kathleen is also contemplating writing a book. I will continue to contribute to the Insiders’ Bulletin, however, until they wheel me out on a gurney.”

Lowe is an Ohio native whose father served as general manager of the Delaware County Fair, where the Little Brown Jug harness race is held each September. He graduated from Asbury College in Wilmore, Ky.
