Every horse that changed hands through the 2014 Snaffle Bit Futurity Select 2-Year-Old Sale, and returned to Reno to compete as a 3-year-old, was eligible for the rich Sale Incentive Purse, which pays the owner and the consignor of the Futurity Sale graduate with the highest score of the prelims.
The Yearling Sale Incentive rewards the high-scoring Futurity horses who changed hands at either the Classic or Select Yearling & Broodmare Sale, and were paid into the incentive by the consignor or buyer.
The high seller in the Snaffle Bit Futurity Select 2-Year-Old Sale was Metallic Look (Metallic Cat x Smart Lookin Hi Brow x High Brow Hickory), consigned by NRCHA Professional Justin Lawrence and his wife, Kelcie, Alzada, Montana. In the Performance Horse Sale, the high seller was Jules Hickory Star (Soula Jule Star x Turn Liz Loose x Doc’s Hickory), a 2010 gelding consigned by NRCHA Hall of  Fame Horseman Ken Wold and his wife, Ramona, Wilton, California.

The top three athletes from most regions will be invited to the Games with the following exceptions: Two athletes from each of the Canadian regions, and one athlete each from Asia, Africa and Latin America. The movement begins at the top of a handstand with the arms fully locked out, the heels on the wall, and the hands placed within the clearly marked area.
Each repetition must start from the hang, or any repetition taken from the ?oor, must achieve a deadlift lockout (hips and knees fully extended, shoulders behind the bar) before re-dipping to initiate the hang clean. When the athlete touches the dumbbell after finishing the fourth sprint, the workout is complete.
Both heads of the dumbbell must touch the ground at the beginning and end of each repetition, and be under control the entire time.
The dumbbell must be moved from the ground to full lockout overhead in one continuous motion without stopping at the shoulders.
The top position is fully locked out overhead with the working arm, plus full extension of the hips and knees with the weight clearly under control. Once the top position is successfully established, the dumbbell must be brought back to the ground under control while maintaining a full grip with at least one hand. At the turn around point, athletes must touch the designated mat with both hands before returning.
After the 50th front squat is complete, the athlete moves to the pull-up bar and completes 40 pull-ups. After all 50 overhead squats are completed, the athlete moves to the pull-up bar and completes 40 pull-ups.
In the back squat, the barbell must be held behind the neck on the athlete's shoulders or back.
Each repetition begins with the barbell on the shoulders and finishes with the weight fully locked out overhead. In this event, the athlete works his or her way through a series of stations with progressively heavier barbells. Women's weights (pounds): 105, 115, 125, 130, 135, 140, 145, 150, 155, 160, 165, 170, 175, 180, 185. Men's weights (pounds): 155, 165, 175, 185, 195, 205, 215, 225, 235, 245, 255, 265, 275, 285, 295. The athlete's score is highest lift completed, plus the number of double-unders at the final station.
These are standard double-unders, with the rope passing twice around the body in a forward motion with each jump. In the snatch, the barbell goes directly from the ground to overhead in one motion without stopping at the shoulders or touching the body anywhere above the hips.
Once the athlete completes 21 wall ball shots, he or she moves to the pull-up bar and begins performing toes-to-bars.
Each athlete will carry a pair of dumbbells 100 feet across the stadium past a box to the designated area and begin burpee box jumps.
In the wall ball shots, the medicine ball must be taken from the bottom of a squat, hip crease below knee, and thrown to hit the 10-foot target above the bottom of the sticker. In the toes-to-bar, the athlete must go from a full hang to having the toes touch the pull-up bar. In the farmer carry, the athlete must carry both dumbbells in the hang position from the specified starting area to the specified finish area approximately 100 feet away.
The athlete must face the box at the bottom position, with the athlete's chest and hips touching the ground.
Crawford, who consigned Mr Hoo Ray to the Snaffle Bit Futurity Sale, also collected a $1,500 Sale Incentive reward. Pepe Le Wright, shown by NRCHA Professional Phillip Ralls, won a $8,821 check for owners Jim and Linda Schrack.
Metallic Look sold for $77,000 to Fults Ranch, Ltd., Amarillo, Texas, which owns and stands Metallic Cat.
All individuals will compete in the first five events (barring disqualification or failure to complete any minimum work requirements). At each event, athletes' performances are ranked, and there is one point per place awarded (1 for 1st, 2 for 2nd, etc.). If a past CrossFit Games champion earns a qualifying spot in any Regional, an additional athlete will be invited from that region.


If he or she does not finish the entire workout within the 9-minute time cap, the score is 9:00, plus a one second penalty for each rep not completed.
The marked area will be 36" wide by 24" deep, and the palm of the hand must remain completely within the area (fingers may extend out of the box). At the call of "3-2-1 … Go!" the athlete gets on the rower and rows 2,000 meters, then gets off the rower and moves to a designated area to perform 50 one-legged squats, alternating legs. If he or she does not complete the workout within the 17-minute time cap, the score is 17:00, plus a one second penalty for each repetition not completed.
If at any point they cannot complete a repetition on a leg, they cannot alternate legs until a repetition has been completed on that leg. Each repetition finishes with the bar racked on the shoulders and the elbows clearly in front of the bar with the hips and knees fully extended.
At the call of "3-2-1 … Go!" the athlete may reach down and begin his or her 10 one-arm dumbbell snatches, alternating arms each repetition. If an athlete does not finish the entire workout in the 10-minute time cap, his or her score is 10:00, plus a one second penalty for each repetition not completed (each sprint counts as two repetitions). If at any point they cannot complete a repetition with an arm, they cannot proceed to the next repetition until they have completed a repetition with that arm. One complete repetition starts on the ground, is snatched to full lockout overhead, then brought back to the ground under control.
Deadlift to hang snatch or deadlift to swing, clean and jerk, or any other combination of movements is not permitted.
Also acceptable are split, power, squat or muscle snatches, as long as the requirements for the finish position, mentioned above, are met. If they touch with only one hand, they will be required to return to the mat to touch with both hands before beginning the next round. At the call of "3-2-1 … Go!" he or she may reach down, place the barbell on his or her back and begin the set of back squats.
If they do not finish the entire workout within the 22-minute time cap, the score is 22:00, plus a one second penalty for each rep not completed. Dead-hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are all allowed, as long as all the requirements are met. A shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used, as long as the elbow, shoulder, hips and knees fully extend, and the bar finishes directly over the heels with the feet together. Once 28 reps are complete, the athlete will carry his or her pair of dumbbells back across the stadium to the designated area by his or her set of rings. If he or she does not finish the entire workout within the 17-minute time cap, their score is 17:00, plus a one second penalty for each rep not completed.
At the bottom, the arms must come to a full lock out (with or without a “false grip”) with the feet off the ground.
The athlete must come to his or her feet and must jump over the box to the other side where the athlete will start the next rep, again facing the box. After completing 21 deadlifts, the athlete moves to the wall and performs 21 handstand push-ups. If an athlete cannot complete the first round of 21 deadlifts and 21 handstand push-ups within the time cap, the athlete does not advance to the next workout. Starting at the floor, the barbell is lifted until hips and knees reach full extension with the shoulders behind the bar. Hitching is permitted, as long as full extension of the knees and hips is eventually reached.
If an athlete does not finish 10 hang cleans in the 17-minute time cap then the athlete does not advance to the next workout.
The athlete may coast over the required distance, but cannot make an attempt to get off the rower (e.g. The one-legged squat begins with the athlete standing and the hip fully open with the knee fully locked out on the squatting leg.
Any variation of the clean is acceptable (power, squat, split or muscle), as long as the above requirements are met. After 10 complete repetitions (which includes touching the ground), he or she advances his or her dumbbell to the next station, places the dumbbell down with control, then sprints to the end of the floor and back to the dumbbell. If an athlete cannot complete one full round of 10 snatches and the sprint, then the athlete does not advance to the next workout. After the 30th repetition, they lower the bar to the ground, remove the metal plates (10-pound bumpers for women), and carry the bar to the next station where they will begin overhead squatting.
After the 30th repetition, the athlete moves to the designated finish area and the workout is complete. At the top, the knees and hips must be completely open with the barbell in control and over the heels.
If a split jerk is used, the feet must be brought back together with the hips, knees and elbows fully extended before the repetition is completed. At the call of "3-2-1 … Go!" he or she will have 50 seconds to move to the platform and perform 20 double-unders, and then one snatch.


The athlete remains at that station until the call of "rotate," at which point he or she will move to the next station and begin the double-unders. The extra double-unders will be used to break ties for athletes who snatched the same weight. For example, if an athlete successfully snatches 215 lbs, then moves to the next station, completes 20 double-unders and misses 225 lbs, then completes 15 double-unders, the athlete's score is 215.15. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, the bar directly over the heels and the feet together.
Once they complete 7 deadlifts, he or she will move to a set of rings and begin performing muscle-ups. Once a total of 3 rounds of wall ball shots and toes-to-bar are complete they move on to the farmer carry.
The arms and hips must be fully extended at the bottom and the feet must be brought back to behind the bar, not out front.
Then, back to the barbell for 15 deadlifts, to the wall for 15 handstand push-ups, then 9 and 9.
At the top of each rep, the arms return to fully locked out with the heels on the wall and within the width of the marked area.
Once the 30th hang clean is complete, the athlete runs to a designated area and the workout is finished. If he or she finishes the 30th hang clean, but does not make it to the designated area before the 17-minute time cap, the score is 17:00. The hip must pass below parallel at the bottom of the repetition, and the opposite foot (non-supporting leg) cannot touch the ground until the repetition is completed. If a split clean is used, the feet must be brought back together with the hips and knees fully extended before the repetition is complete. If when advancing the dumbbell, the athlete drops the weight or does not place it down with control, they will be assessed a 1 burpee penalty before completing the sprint. Pressing out at the top is permitted, as long as the dumbbell never descends within the repetition. A full squat clean will count as a repetition as long as all the above requirements are met.
A full squat snatch will count as a repetition as long as all the above requirements are met. If the athlete does not successfully snatch the barbell within the 50 seconds, he or she does not advance to the next platform.
The athlete must attempt the snatch (after the 20 double-unders) before going for extra double-unders.
If an athlete cannot successfully complete one snatch, they do not advance to the next workout.
Once 7 muscle-ups are completed, the athlete will move back to the barbell and begin his or her second round of deadlifts.
If an athlete cannot complete the three rounds of deadlifts and muscle-ups, he or she cannot advance to the CrossFit Games.
If the dumbbells are set down prior to the designated finish area, the athlete may not make any forward progress until the dumbbells are once again in the hang position. The damper setting and foot positions may be adjusted by the athlete at any time during the row. The non-supporting foot must be in front of the supporting foot during the entire repetition. The athlete then begins a second round of one-arm dumbbell snatches, alternating arms each repetition. After the 30th repetition, the athlete lowers the bar to the ground, removes the 25-pound bumpers (15-pound bumpers for women), and carries the bar to the next station where he or she will begin front squatting.
Once a total of three rounds of deadlifts and muscle-ups are complete, the athlete moves on to the wall ball shots. Swings or rolls to support are not permitted (if the athlete is kipping, a change of direction under the rings is required).
You may hold the foot of the opposite (non-supporting) leg with your hand while performing the one-legged squat.
After 10 repetitions, he or she advances the dumbbell to the next station, then sprints to the end of the floor and back to the dumbbell.
Each time the athlete completes 10 snatches, including touching the ground on the final snatch, he or she will advance the dumbbell with control before beginning the sprint.
