Captain Crunch has kicked off his Southern Hemisphere siring career in style with his first New Zealand starter, Ukraine, a smart winner at Winton yesterday afternoon.

The Bob Butt trained 2-year-old showed a great turn of foot to reel in the leader and score a comfortable three-quarter length win.

Bred by Norwegian Wood Breeding Limited, Ukraine is out of the Presidential Ball mare Back In The USSR, making him a half-brother to the Group 1 juvenile winner Dizzy Miss Lizzy.
