On Monday, the Darley Stallions Twitter account announced that champion Unique Bella will be bred to Medaglia d'Oro in 2019.

The 2017 female sprinter of the year, Unique Bella was retired in August following the discovery of a sesamoid fracture after a morning workout at Del Mar. Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, the 4-year-old daughter of Tapit counts wins in three Grade 1 races on her resume: the La Brea, Beholder Mile, and Clement Hirsch.

Out of the Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic winner Unrivaled Belle, Unique Bella retired with a record of nine wins and two seconds from 12 starts, and earnings of $1,272,400. She will enter her broodmare career at owner Don Alberto Stable's farm in Lexington.
