Live TV is a blessing to the masses. Anything can happen in a short space of time, especially at an event where there's beers to be drank and adrenaline is running high.
There are usually three types of people on live broadcasts - the boring, the attention seeker and the born entertainer. All are a great laugh in their own special ways, but the latter is easily best.
Josh Sheahan, owner of the horse Top of the Town, falls under the category of born entertainer, as he once again gave an incredible interview.
At The Races' cameras were fixed on him and his team, capturing his excitement as he hoped for his horse to storm the Galway Races.

Excited at the prospect of cutting the 20/1 odds and winning the race, Sheahan claimed that "If this horse wins, anywhere in the world, you'll never see the likes of this."
He also admitted that he feels very close to his horse, saying he'd been 'sleeping with the horse last night for two hours, and rubbing his belly'.
The excitable publican also strayed off topic somehow, giving an anecdote to the camera about a date he recently had, putting it on the record that he was still single.
"But ladies I'm still single anyway, just in case you're all wondering," he said. "Wait 'till you hear this one though. I took this woman out last week, 14 gin and tonic, 7.90 a go, and then she said my mother's outside to take me home."
Despite his horse not winning, or even coming close, he'd won over a lot of people with his interview.
Great laughs all round, which is exactly what a day out at the races is all about.
More of this, please.
