Fan Favorite Two Emmys Euthanized

Two Emmys | Coady


According to a report by Marcus Hersh of the Daily Racing Form, Two Emmys (English Channel), the winner of the 2021 GI Mr. D. S., suffered a fatal injury after a freak training accident during a workout Sunday morning at the Fair Grounds.

Two Emmys was a newly turned 8-year-old.

Hersh broke the news on X, writing “Confirmed tragic news circulating that Two Emmys was euthanized this morning after breaking his leg during a workout. Per trainer H Robertson the fracture occurred the knee, very unusual, & likely happened after another horse “bounced him off the fence” in upper stretch.”

At deadline for this story a call to trainer Hugh Robertson seeking additional information had not been returned.

Hersh also wrote that James Graham was aboard for the workout and took off his Sunday mounts because of overall soreness.

Two Emmys was the type of blue-collar horse that becomes a fan favorite. He was bought for $4,500 at the 2017 Keeneland September Sale. He went on to win eight race and earn $985,083. His most recent win came in the Dec. 23 Buddy Diliberto S. at the Fair Grounds. His graded stakes wins included the GIII Fair Grounds S. and the GII Muniz Memorial Classic S.
