BRAINTREE, MA– May 18, 2017 – Ahead of the 142nd Preakness Stakes on Saturday, May 20, 2017, Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation company, is pleased to announce a lifetime sponsorship of Lookin at Lee, the 2017 Kentucky Derby runner-up. The announcement builds upon Sentient Jet’s extensive support of the horseracing community, which includes being named the Preferred Private Aviation Partner of the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks, and Churchill Downs in 2016 as well as serving as a longtime sponsor of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships and Fasig-Tipton.
“We have been avid supporters of Lookin at Lee since the Sentient Jet Juvenile last year and have been cheering him on ever since,” said Andrew Collins, President and CEO of Sentient Jet. “Following his thrilling Kentucky Derby run just a few weeks ago, we are more excited than ever to officially announce our support for the remainder of his racing career.”
Lookin at Lee competed in Sentient’s name-in-title Breeders’ Cup race, the Sentient Jet Juvenile, in 2016 which is the richest two-year-old race in North America. The 1 1/16 mile race, restricted to male two-year-olds is often a preview of the stars of the Triple Crown races for the following year. In 2017, Lookin at Lee was the Kentucky Derby runner-up. Lookin at Lee is trained by Steven M. Asmussen and his Jockey is Corey J. Lanerie.
“Sentient Jet has established a distinguished reputation in the horse racing community for being an enthusiastic champion of the sport, and we are honored to have their loyal support for the duration of Lookin at Lee’s career,” said L and N Racing’s Michael Levinson.
