Captain Crunch was the 2018 US Two-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year and he returned as a three year old to win the North America Cup.

Captain Crunch is not only a World Champion himself, he retired the greatest, fastest and richest son of Captaintreacherous – the hottest and most commercial young sire in the world of harness racing.

Like father like son – Captaintreacherous and Captain Crunch were both US Two-Year-Olds of the Year and both came back as three-year-olds to win the North America Cup.

Not only did Captain Crunch emulate his sire in winning the North America Cup – he did so in the fastest ever running of the great race and set a new track and Canadian record.

Captain Crunch also boasts an outstanding maternal pedigree (U5 Family) with his dam, Sweet Paprika being a 1:51.2f stakes performing two and three-year old filly.
