How do you benefit from relationships that may seem unlikely?

Just 150 years ago, it took months to travel from New York to California by covered wagon. But in today's globalized world, communicating with virtually anyone on the planet is a matter of touching a button, and traveling from New York to California takes a mere five hours.

Enter one of the most important inventions of our time—the jumbo jet. And enter two bold entrepreneurs who sought out business partners in a most unlikely place. Come along as 47 prize-winning thoroughbred race horses journey halfway across the globe and marvel in the fact that somewhere a horse is in flight every day of the year. Learn how airfreight, more than just a way to get consumer goods in a hurry, is a global platform from which unique business partnerships are born.
