According to the Dutch website horses.nl the 17 year old mare has struggled with injuries over the last year and will now be used for breeding. 

 

Portofino has had a brilliant career together with Michael; five times she has been qualified for the World Cup finals and in 2005 the mare was second in the finals in Kuala Lumpur. Her merits also include a team bronze medal for Britain at the European Championship in 2007, and several Grand Prix and Top League wins.
