Emilius started his life with Colonel John Udney, a member of the Jockey club before Robert Robson, the Newmarket trainer took him on; known for schooling so many classic winners for the Dukes of Grafton and Lord Grosvenor. Emilius was undefeated in 1823 during his first season, however this was short-lived, and in his second year he only won one of his four starts and his racing career came to an abrupt end, however his fame lived on.
