Biofuel, last year's Canadian Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old filly, has been retired from racing because of a chipped sesamoid. The injury occurred in the Ontario Matron Stakes at 1 1/16 miles at
Woodbine July 24 in Biofuel’s second start of the year. She finished
third in the race.
“We knew something wasn’t right the way she finished up,” said
Brereton C. Jones, Biofuel’s breeder/owner and owner of Airdrie Stud
near Midway, Ky. “It wasn’t the way she always finishes up. In an hour
or two she was lame. It’s not a life threatening injury."
