We never lost confidence in her.  We worked with her and got her to run a good race today–thank God. Mike (Smith) and I both thought she went too fast early last time (when well beaten as favorite in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint Nov. 4), and she didn’t finish. Today, he let her lay a little off the pace and kept her wide and she finished well.  I have confidence in Unique Bella.  She gets into it and I thought she’d beat her (Paradise Woods), and down the lane, she did it.

We’ll definitely run Tiz Mischief and Bandito. I’ll also probably enter Free Drop Billy and Hollywood Star, but most likely just one of them will run. The other one I’ll wait a week and send over to Tampa,” said Romans, referring to the Feb. 10 Sam F. Davis Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs.

Trainer Dale Romans, said he intends to enter as many as four horses in the Grade 2, $350,000 Holy Bull. Entries be will taken on Wednesday
