Rob Lowe is an outstanding American actor best known for his prolific film and television shows. Now, he has opted to use his talent and popularity for public broadcasting by hosting the "Success Files" segment on Thoroughbred Horse Racing for Public Television member stations.

Back in the 18th century, the thoroughbred horses were created by a cross breed between English mares and Arabian horses plus other horses. The cross breeding was to produce horses that were of high strength for long races. Although the thoroughbred horses are known for horse racing, they also participate in other racing such as show jumping and fox hunting.

Thoroughbred horse racing is a common sport in the United Kingdom and the United States. In the UK the game is called National Hunt Racing while in the USA it is referred to as Steeplechasing. Steeplechasing is a competition where the participants are supposed to jump different fences and go through obstacles.

There are two thoroughbred horse racing, flat and jump races. Thoroughbred horse racing can also be under certain conditions such as handicap races where the horse is tested against its handicap like being overweight or age. Another requirement is Weight For Age where the horse carries specific weights in reference to its sex, age, and strength.

These and more details will be discussed in this episode of "Success Files" with Rob Lowe which will be broadcasted on a Public Television Member stations.
