Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation company and the inventor of the jet card, will serve as the Official Private Jet Partner of the Breeders´ Cup, making it the exclusive private aviation partner of the races for the seventh year, the company said.
The partnership further elevates Sentient Jet´s longstanding support of the horseracing community, which began in 2008. In addition to Sentient´s involvement in Breeders´ Cup, the company is also the Preferred Private Aviation Partner of the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks, and Churchill Downs and sponsor of Fasig-Tipton, 2016 Kentucky Derby Champion Nyquist, and 2017 Kentucky Derby runner-up Lookin at Lee.
As the exclusive private aviation partner of Breeders´ Cup, Sentient Jet will serve as the title sponsor of the USD 2 million Breeders´ Cup Juvenile, the richest 2-year old race in North America that often previews stars of the Triple Crown races for the following year.
Additionally, Sentient Jet will offer on-site VIP hospitality for Sentient Jet Cardholders, including premier seating and access to the Paddock and Winner´s Circle. In an effort to further support the thoroughbred owners and breeders attending the Breeders´ Cup World Championships, Sentient Jet will also host a charter flight from San Diego to Lexington immediately following the 2017 event, allowing horsemen to participate in all of the weekend´s races while still arriving in Kentucky in time for the annual November sales.
Ahead of the races, Sentient Jet will sponsor a “Hole in One” competition at two official Breeders´ Cup golf tournaments, gifting the winner with a USD 25,000 jet card and also contributing a matching USD 25,000 donation to official thoroughbred charities.
