Boston-based private aviation company Sentient Jet has announced its sponsorship of 3-year-old thoroughbred racehorse Sole Volante in the 152nd running of the Belmont Stakes, the company said.
Traditionally the last leg of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes went first this year on June 20, 2020, at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. This year´s Belmont Stakes was free of spectators and even horse owners, in keeping with health and safety guidelines in New York designed to inhibit the spread of COVID-19.
The 3-year-old thoroughbred, whose Italian name translates as Flying Sun, and reflects the illuminating travel experience guests can anticipate on Sentient Jet, is majority-owned by Reeves Thoroughbred Racing,
Sole Volante placed sixth in the June 20 race.
Sole Volante brought visibility to Sentient Jet´s new Be Ready campaign launched in late May in response to the new ways people are traveling amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, including avoiding crowded locations, high-touch TSA checkpoints, and commercial aircraft.
Founded in 1999 and now an integral part of Directional Aviation, Sentient Jet is a private aviation company that offers clients the flexibility and convenience of flying private for their personal and business air travel needs.
