Captain Crunch was 2018 US Two-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year and at three went on to win the North America Cup.

While Captain Crunch retired the greatest, fastest and richest son of Captaintreacherous – he is from the hottest and most commercial sire line in the world of harness racing.

Buyers, trainers and owners are now looking at him to drive the Volomite through Direct Scooter line forward in this country, just like the stars listed above.
