Star pacer Captaintreacherous retired (The Associated Press)

Two-time Pacer of the Year Captaintreacherous has been retired. Last season, Captaintreacherous won 13 of 16 races and $2.05 million on his way to his second Pacer of the Year honor. This season, he won two of seven starts and was scratched from the Canadian Pacing Derby in August. Trainer Tony Alagna said Monday the horse ”hasn’t been himself” for several weeks and has been fighting a respiratory bug.
