Explanation of NRHA Futurity Payouts and Nominator Incentives

Nomination Program Impact

The NRHA Futurity saw a massive increase in added money due to the NRHA Nomination Program. According to NRHA Chief Financial Officer John Foy, with the addition of the North American Nomination Program’s added monies, there was an increase of more than $600,000 in added money with over $420,000 in the NRHA Open Futurity and $180,000 in the Cinch NRHA Non Pro Futurity. The total purse for just the Futurity was more than $2 million (a 28%+ increase). Nominators collected more than $100,000 – even if they didn’t still own the horse!
