NCHA Futurity Payout
NATIONAL CUTTING HORSE ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES PAYOUTS FOR THE 2020 NCHA FUTURITY
The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) announced the potential payouts for the 2020 NCHA North Texas Chevy Dealers World Championship Futurity presented by Great American Insurance. This year the NCHA will be awarding nearly $3 million in total prize money.
“We are on track to have one of the largest payouts at the World Championship Futurity the NCHA has ever seen,” Jay Winborn, NCHA executive director said. “Even with the huge finals payout, Open semi-finalists are still set to receive a payout of around $10,000 per exhibitor.”
The 2020 payout has the potential to award $1.8 million in the Open division alone, with the top five placings receiving a six-figure check. With the current entry numbers, the Open champion could take home $250,000 and the Open reserve champion may receive upwards of $200,000.
“This is an exciting time for our industry, and it would not be possible without the support from many individuals,” Winborn said. “The commitments by Great American Insurance and North Texas Chevy Dealers of $100,000 in bonus money to this event continues to be a huge asset for our association, along with the support from Group W Productions, McAllister Assets, Justin Insurance, and Rios of Mercedes. Also, Jerry Durant stepped up this year in a big way to help bring these goals to reality.”
In addition to the potential increased payout for the Open Division, there is a likelihood for a huge payout in the Non-Pro division as well. If the current entries hold, the Non-Pro champion could receive a check for $75,000.
NCHA will release more information regarding the Limited Open and Amateur classes in the coming weeks.
“I understand this has been one of the most challenging years for our industry,” Winborn said. “We are fortunate to have strong partnerships that allow us to offer this type of purse to our competitors. I want to thank everyone who has made this possible, and we are looking forward to a fantastic Futurity.”
