Desert International Horse Park (DIHP) proudly welcomes U.S. Bank to its slate of sponsors. U.S. Bank joins as a first-time Gold Sponsor and will serve as Presenting Sponsor of Desert Circuit Week 3, spanning January 24-28, 2024.
U.S. Bank recently expanded its presence in California with the acquisition of MUFG Union Bank. The company supports a number of programs that benefit sports communities, including a multi-year sponsorship with Los Angeles native and PGA TOUR professional golfer Colin Morikawa and Youth on Course, as well as serving the official bank of the WNBA and a WNBA Changemaker.
Throughout the first weeks of Desert Circuit, U.S. Bank will serve as title sponsor of two feature events: the $25,000 U.S. Bank National Grand Prix which occurred on Saturday, January 13, and was won by Megan McDermott and Nintendo, as well as the $117,000 1.50m CSI3* Grand Prix on Saturday, January 27. Each class will be run under the lights in the Grand Prix Arena as the feature event of its respective week.
“U.S. Bank is making its mark on the sports world, as are we, so it feels like a natural fit to have them on board as a Gold Sponsor,” remarked Steve Hankin, President and CEO of DIHP. “We admire their initiatives across all sports and we hope this partnership not only elevates the equestrian world but helps to bridge gaps between all sports.”
