Sycuan Casino Resort announced that the organization has entered into a multi-year agreement with the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club (DMTC). The new partnership will take effect this year with the opening of Del Mar's 80th racing season on Wednesday, July 17.

Sycuan, the racetrack's new official and exclusive California partner, will have the first-ever finish line signage at the track, as well as daily branding during the stretch-run replays of the track's races. The organization will also be recognized as the presenting sponsor for Del Mar's popular Handicapping Challenge on the weekend of July 27 and 28.

"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."

Additionally, DMTC will host Sycuan's players and members throughout the season, allowing for an action-oriented group to experience the excitement and opportunities available at one of American's great racing facilities.

"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."
