Her trainer Reade Baker has announced she had chipped an ankle bone.

Biofuel retires as the winner of six races from 13 starts. She was crowned Canada's champion juvenile filly of 2009 after winning the Grade 3 Mazarine Stakes and running a close fourth to She Be Wild in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.

She also became Canadian champion three-year-old filly and the country's horse of the year after winning the Grade 3 Selene Stakes along with a clutch of restricted races at Woodbine. She was also placed in the Grade 1 Mother Goose Stakes and Coaching Club American Oaks.

Biofuel, out of an unraced Indian Charlie half-sister to Arkansas Derby winner Dansil, is owned by Brereton C. Jones of Airdrie Stud.

Her first mating next spring will be with Majesticperfection, a Grade 1-winning son of Harlan's Holiday who retired to Airdrie in Kentucky this year.
