Services We Offer

The team at Bella Inizio Farm offers several services for horse owners beyond breaking, training, and racing, including Pin Hooking and Bloodstock Advising.

Bloodstock Advising

Our diverse and extensive background in the industry is your secret weapon. We work with you and for you to turn your goals and dreams into realities and accomplishments. Understanding the industry, the players, the horses, and your goals allows for level decisions to be made. Whether you want placement in races, advising on stallions to breed, or creating exit plans on existing horses in your stable, we will make the best possible recommendations for your interests and success. We prefer to work diligently and quietly behind the scenes and allow the horses to do the talking. Being discrete and respectful of the privacy of each owner is our priority.

What We Do

Pin Hooking

It can seem overwhelming, but Pin Hooking is a no brainer and easier with an experienced team by your side.

Pin Hooking 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 pin hook mares who are in foal. This is not as common of a practice but, done carefully, it can yield solid returns.

Even in the toughest economy, buying smart can set you up for success in the next selling season. The most important factors are the selection of horses and patience through the process. Our team is focused on combing through and carefully selecting horses at sales. Maintaining our focus on budget and the quality of the horse are our top priorities. We are part of every step, from acquisition to arranging transportation and prepping for the coming sales and either representing or placing with a consignor in the sales process. While we always look for the diamond in the rough to yield the homerun pin hook, modest consistent returns are important as well.

With Pin Hooking, it’s comforting to know that you can insure your investment. There are not many investments that offer this kind of assurance. If something catastrophic happens, you have the option to carry mortality insurance to cover your capital investment. In an industry with known risk factors, along with the uncertainty of working with a live animal, this provides a sense of security for your investment.

We have successfully Pin Hooked for many years yielding profits well over 20% in 6-month timeframes. It’s a high-risk, high-reward part of the industry but there is nothing like being part of a successful Pin Hook. We look forward to you investing with us at Bella Inizio Farm.
