Hello, there!

I’m Jena. I look forward to hearing from you.

I didn’t pick them, they picked me. For that, I’m grateful.

I keep an open-door policy for owners as I continue to build a team and family environment which has been the foundation for this growth allowing me to maintain a consistent string of horses no matter where the team is racing.

Frequently Asked

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 Pin Hooking and Bloodstock Advising.

Bloodstock Advising

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.

Pin Hooking

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.


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

Covered Eurocisor

Our spacious covered eurociser allows for 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 is sure to benefit from their time in the eurocisor.


Our matted entry and exit swimming pool allows for an excellent rehabilitative or alternative training tool for your horse. An excellent tool to add to your horses training regimen.

Large Round Pen

Our oversized round pen allows for an excellent safe space to start up yearlings or offer a controlled environment to a horse not quite ready for full turn out.
