According to the new incentive, any 2-year-old that is consigned to the 2014 NRHA/Markel Insurance Futurity Prospect Sale that competes in the 2015 NRHA Futurity, and wins one of the following divisions, will be paid an additional award as follows:
FuturityOpen/Non-Pro Incentives (75% to owner/25% to consignor)
- Level 4 = $50,000

- Level 2 = $25,000
Also new for 2014, all offspring of stallions and mares enrolled in the NRHA Sire and Dam Program are eligible to consign to the NRHA Futurity Sales.
