Air Horse One

     Winning has its privileges, so move over President Donald Trump!
     Saturday, May 5, after the running of the Kentucky Derby in Louisville, the winner may climb aboard a Tex Sutton Forwarding Company Boeing 727-200 aircraft dubbed “Air Horse One” and enjoy hay, pretzels, and the music of “My Old Kentucky Home” as the thoroughbred does a victory lap aloft.
     That is the treatment “Always Dreaming,” winner of the 2017 Kentucky Derby, received as the mint juleps flowed for the the two-legged folks on the ground.
     Ticket prices for first class equine travel are around $5,000 according to Rob Clark, President of Tex Sutton Forwarding.

The One & Only

     “We are the only U.S. based horse transportation company to utilize a dedicated aircraft,” Rob Clark said.
     “We offer animal shippers of all kinds the luxury of flexibility, enabling us to better meet the needs, demands, and flight schedules of our valuable customers.
     “Flight crew members are trained to be sensitive to the travel needs of our equine passengers and operate the aircraft accordingly. Avoiding steep ascents and descents, steering clear of adverse weather conditions, putting a premium on smooth, uneventful landings, and minimizing time between stops all add up to stress-free and comfortable travel in a climate-controlled environment.
     “Plus, with our own aircraft (Kalitta Charters), we never have to adapt to the schedule of an airline.”

Free & Easy Does It

     “Equine transportation,” Rob insists, “should not be a stressful event, and we want you to have peace of mind while your horse is in flight.
     “So our aircraft configuration permits our customers to include a limited number of grooms or assistants to accompany their horse when traveling.
     “This helps assure safe handling by someone familiar with the individual animal from stall to stall.”
