The Kentucky Derby, held annually the first Saturday in May, is the ultimate status symbol event. Million-dollar horses race down a track surrounded by millionaires in equally fine attire in the stands. And what better way to get to this quintessentially American sporting event in style than in a private jet?

The preferred private jet partner of the Derby is Sentient Jet, and they’ve offered up a special package for guests that features a private breakfast with Bobby Flay, special invite-only events, and more.

“As a longtime supporter of the horse racing community, we are honored to partner with the Kentucky Derby as one of the most renowned races in the sport,” said Andrew Collins, president and CEO of Sentient Jet. “We look forward to expanding our host of Kentucky Derby amenities to ensure the most exciting Derby experience for our Sentient Jet Cardholders and beyond.”

Sentient Jet Cardholders will be able to purchase access to the normally invite-only Mansion, a private place to watch the race events at Churchill Downs, a Derby Day Breakfast with Bobby Flay on Saturday, May 6 at the acclaimed 21c Museum Hotel from 9:00-11:00AM, and also special extra flights on Sentient that will allow non-cardholders to book private jet travel to-and-from Louisville without a Jet Card commitment. Both Cardholders and Derby Air travelers flying to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby and Oaks will be treated to a curated Kentucky Derby experience including a bespoke in-flight cocktail created by Flay.

We can’t think of a better way to do the Derby in style.
