$100K bonus money payout gives futurity amateurs large increase
November 16, 2017
Great American Insurance Group and the North Texas Chevrolet Dealers are proud to announce the bonus money payout for the 2017 NCHA Futurity. This year the amateur competitors will see an increase to 40k to be divided between the two Rios of Mercedes Boots Amateur Classes. The Non-Pro will receive 20k and the Open will receive 40k. The bonus money in each division will be split between the champions and reserve champions. June McGee, representing Great American Insurance Group and Justin Insurance felt strongly about increasing support of the Rios of Mercedes Boots Amateur Divisions. Although the Open Class showcases the top trainers, amateurs support the industry by buying horses, hiring trainers and by devoting their time and passion to our sport. It only seemed right to equally reward all those who support the sport of cutting.
