Tu Endie Wei has been retired from racing and will be bred.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Tu Endie Wei , who finished sixth here in last Sunday’s Grade 3 Ontario Fashion at six furlongs, is headed for the breeding shed.

“She’s sound and healthy, same as she was,” said Reade Baker, who has trained the Kentucky-homebred Tu Endie Wei for owner Brereton C. Jones. “She just doesn’t have that fire anymore.”

Tu Endie Wei, by Johar out of Ms. Cornstalk, was Canada’s champion 2-year-old filly in 2011, following in the footsteps of her half-sister Biofuel, the 2009 Sovereign Award winner in that division.

Racing for Jones and Baker, Tu Endie Wei won the My Dear, Ontario Debutante, and Glorious Song in her first campaign and added the Star Shoot and the Grade 3 Seaway this season, with all of those successes coming in Polytrack sprints at Woodbine.

Tu Endie Wei also finished second here in the Grade 3, 1 1/16-mile Selene and third in Belmont’s Grade 3, six-furlong Victory Ride as a 3-year-old and will join her owner’s broodmare band with a mark of 5-1-1 and earnings of $525,500 from 12 starts.
