BRAINTREE, MA – July 29, 2016 – Ahead of the 2016 Haskell Invitational on July 31, 2016, Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation company, is pleased to announce it will sponsor Reddam Racing’s Nyquist, Kentucky Derby champion and winner of the 2015 Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, throughout the duration of his racing career. The announcement follows Sentient Jet’s sponsorship of Nyquist during the 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby and 141st Preakness Stakes this year.
“We have been loyal supporters of Nyquist ever since his win in the Sentient Breeders’ Cup Juvenile last fall,” said Andrew Collins, President and CEO of Sentient Jet. “It has been an honor to sponsor him and the Reddam Racing team this season thus far, and we look forward to continuing our support through the Haskell Invitational and beyond.”
With horseracing more top of mind than ever, Sentient Jet’s continued sponsorship of Nyquist marks yet another expansion of the company’s longtime presence within the horseracing community. Sentient Jet is also the Preferred Private Aviation Partner of the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks, and Churchill Downs, as well as sponsor of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and Fasig Tipton.
“We are honored to have had Sentient Jet’s continued support of Nyquist ever since his win at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile,” said J. Paul Reddam, Owner of Nyquist. “Sentient Jet has established a distinguished reputation throughout the horseracing community through their sponsorship of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and partnership with the Kentucky Derby, and we are thrilled to extend our partnership throughout Nyquist’s racing career.”
Nyquist is the winner of the 2016 Kentucky Derby, 2015 Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, and 2015 Eclipse Award for Champion Two-Year Olds (where he took 255 of the 261 votes). He is named for the Swedish ice hockey player Gustav Nyquist, who plays for the Detroit Red Wings, and is currently owned and trained by the same team who won the 2012 Kentucky Derby with I’ll Have Another, Doug O’Neill and J. Paul Reddam.
