WATCH: Oisin Murphy talks through a fabulous Sussex Stakes win on board Alcohol Free.

At times the vitriolic world of Twitter often casts a shadow over the brilliant sport of horse racing, but behind all the keyboard warriors and general miserable, abusive trolls there's a number of videos or photos that just show the equine world in a better light. Here at HorseRacing.net we want to show some of the more positive images of horse racing, and we've picked out a few things that made us smile.

Magnificent Murphy Relives Sussex Win Via Jockeycam

Oisin Murphy is an interviewer's dream. Eloquent, insightful and his willingness to produce entertaining content from a jockey's point of view gives punters a terrific insight to the world of a jockey. Well, in the aftermath of Alcohol Free's marvellous success in the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, Murphy talked through his winning ride with the help of the excellent Jockeycam. It was a sensational performance on the track by the filly, but Murphy's description of his winning ride is equally Group 1 class.

Ex-Racehorse Cools Down With The Help Of A Fan

Negativity may have emerged in the wake of the Panorama programme, but former Grand National winning jockey Jason Maguire's Ivy Lodge Farm showed how ex-racehorses are treated at his pre-training and rehabilitation centre. With the hot weather affecting us all a couple of weeks ago, a horse named 'Steve' was cooling down via an electronic fan. He's one 'cool dude' now!

16-Year-Old O'Brien Makes Dad Fergal Very Proud

Fergal O'Brien's Twitter account often brings a smile to your face, but the National Hunt trainer has ventured to the Flat recently and he saddled a winner at Carlisle on Monday night. However, this winner was very much a family affair as O'Brien's 16-year-old Fern was on board the 25/1 shot Lord P. Astonishingly, this was O'Brien's first ride under Rules, and she spoke how she came through Pony Club to make it to the track.

Watch World Horse Racing's video here to see what a top-class victory means...

Home Schooling Feature On ITV Racing A Real Joy

One of the highlights of the ITV racing coverage away from the racing is their home schooling feature, which shows some excellent behind the scenes footage from various stables. Two particular videos in the package showed former top-class chasers Sire De Grugy and Definitly Red doing a bit of showjumping, while Derby and King George hero Adayar also features. Enjoy!
