Follow Me On

I keep an open-door policy for owners. I continue to build a successful team with a family environment, which is the foundation for my growth. This allows me to maintain a consistent string of horses no matter where the team is racing.



Services We Offer

Contact Jena Antonucci, and the team at Bella Inizio Farm offers several services for horse owners beyond breaking, training, and racing, including Pinhooking and Bloodstock Advising.

Bloodstock Advising

We work with you to turn your goals into reality. Understanding the industry, the players, the horses, and your goals allows for making level decisions.

Pin Hooking

Pinhooking is the practice where we buy a Weanling or Yearling to sell in the next sales cycle. When we purchase a Weanling, we prepare for the Yearling Sales the following year. For a Yearling, we look to sell as a 2-Year-Old. It’s also possible to Pinhook mares who are in foal.


We are here to help at whatever level you want to participate. We can work with your specific budget and plans to ensure you have a seat at the table. We want everyone interested to have the experience of buying or racing Thoroughbreds. Contact Jena Antonucci for more information.

Covered Eurocisor

Our spacious covered Eurociser allows each horse to stretch their backs and necks while walking freely. Whether cooling out after training or starting to regain fitness while being legged back up, each horse can benefit from its time in the Eurocisor.

Large Round Pen

Our oversized round pen allows for an ideal safe space to start-up yearlings or offers a controlled environment to a horse not quite ready for full turnout.

Meet the Team
