BRAINTREE, MA – October 4, 2016 – Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation company, is pleased to announce that it has been named the Official Private Jet Card of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, making it the exclusive private aviation partner of the races for the sixth consecutive year and further solidifying Sentient Jet’s growing presence in the horseracing community.
As part of the sponsorship, the title sponsor of the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile will offer on-site VIP hospitality for Sentient Jet Card holders, including premier seating and access to the Paddock and Winner’s Circle. Sentient Jet will also create special offers for owners and nominators, including a special charter from LA to Lexington for Breeders’ Cup horsemen to attend the Fasig-Tipton sale following the races. The company will also be activating on-site with hosted chocolate and champagne bars throughout Santa Anita including the Chandelier Room, Front Runner and the Breakfast Marquis.
