Set to come into effect at the start of Del Mar’s 80th racing season, Sycuan Casino Resort has confirmed that it will be entering into a multi-year agreement with Del Mar Thoroughbred Club (DMTC). 

As part of the new alliance, Sycuan will be named as the racetrack’s new official and exclusive california partner, which will see the casino resort’s daily branding displayed throughout the stretch-run replays of the track’s races.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club starting in 2019,” said John Dinius, general manager at Sycuan Casino Resort. 

“DMTC is truly a premier destination for entertainment, sports and special events. Through this partnership, we will be able to offer exclusive access and one-of-a-kind experiences to both Del Mar patrons and Club Sycuan Members.”

Under the agreement, Sycuan will also be recognized as the presenting sponsor for Del Mar’s popular Handicapping Challenge on the weekend of July 27 and 28.

This is in addition to DMTC hosting Sycuan’s players and members throughout the racing season, which will allow for punters to enjoy the overall racing experience. 

“We see this as a natural marriage between a natural pair,” said Walker McBride, director of sponsorships and digital media at DMTC. “We believe Sycuan is the ultimate destination in San Diego for those seeking the casino experience and we see ourselves in a similar light when it comes to a premier day at the races.”
