CAMPBELLVILLE, Ontario (AP) - Captaintreacherous won the $1 million North America Cup on Saturday night at Mohawk Racetrack, rallying to take the world's richest pacing event in 1:48.3.

Driven by Tim Tetrick, the son of 2008 Cup champion Somebeachsomewhere earned $500,000. The favorite improved to 3-0 this year and has 11 victories in 13 career starts.

``He's such a good horse,'' Tetrick said. ``At times he doesn't always show it but he's always great. I put a lot of confidence in my colt and when I called on him, he did his job.''

Twilight Bonfire, a 90-1 shot, was second in the 10-horse field. Wake Up Peter finished third.

Captaintreacherous paid $4.80, $3.30 and $2.70. Twilight Bonfire returned $44 and $15.40, and Wake Up Peter paid $4.80 paid to show.

Tetrick took Captaintreacherous wide in the stretch and the 3-year-old pacer pulled ahead.

``That's the main thing,'' Tetrick said. ``They have to want to do it. They have to want to be champions. They have to be able to put the moves out in front. You know, he doesn't always win by much, but he gets the job done and he's good.''

Captaintreacherous won the $1 million Metro Pace last season, and trainer Tony Alagna figured the race Saturday would play out much like the Metro - the country's top race for 2-year-old pacers.

``I talked to Timmy before the race and said, `The way it looks like it's going to unfold out exactly how the Metro did last year,''' said Alagna, who also conditioned Wake Up Peter. ``A couple of horses are going to run from the outside and they're going to carry you into it.

``And that's how the race worked out. Tim worked out a masterful trip and the horse showed up. Every time this horse gets a question mark he comes back and answers with an exclamation mark.''
