LunaJets is on hand 24/7 to find a bespoke private flight solution to suit your itinerary and to provide the best price for your private jet to the Kentucky Derby.

This year will be the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby, an extremely traditional annual horse race for 3-year old Thoroughbreds that brings the amazing 2-week long Kentucky Derby Festival to a close. The Kentucky Derby is the 1st leg of the American Triple Crown but it is certainly the race that jockeys, trainers and stables want to win the most. Some of the world’s finest horses and greatest jockeys will race over 2km to lift the coveted solid-gold trophy and receive the blanket of 554 red roses that is traditionally awarded to the winner.

This is the most attended horse race in North America and the noise and atmosphere created by over 150,000 racegoers must be witnessed to be believed. The Kentucky Derby is known as ‘The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sport’ for a good reason and never fails to be an unpredictable and exhilarating spectacle.
