Cruzado dela Noche showed early talent, including third place in the prestigious Peter Haughton Memorial as a two-year-old in world record time . That season he recorded a personal best juvenile time of 1.53.8 , set at victory in the International Stallion Stakes at The Red Mile in Lexington, Kentucky Cruzado dela Noche retired after six strong years as a racehorse, where he has shown both early talent and speed as well as the highest strength and endurance as an older horse. He has won big races in both mile and staying races and was adaptable on any size track due to his great gait ,
After banking over $250,000 in prize money during three-year-old season and taking a record of 1:53.6 on the 1000-meter track, Cruzado Dela Noche moved to Sweden under Stefan Melander's training. As a four-year-old he finished third in the Sprinter Champion, won the Group 2 Norrland Grand Prix from death at Tobin Kronos and crowned the season with victory in the Group 1 Grosser Preis von Deutschland race. In addition, he erased Nuncio's Swedish record for foreign-born four-year-old stallions and geldings, by winning in 1.54.2 over 2.100m on örebrotravet defeating Twister Bi and Uncle Lasse, among others. Won the Copenhagen Cup from death As a five-year-old, Cruzado then continued his success with victory in the Group 1 Copenhagen Cup race from outside the leader in 1.54.2 over 2100m. He also took a meritorious fourth place in the Jubilee Trophy at 1.53 over 2140m behind Readly Express and Twister Bi. After hs five-year-old season, Cruzado dela Noche returned to the United States, this time to Marcus Melander's stable. International Trot, also known as the World Cup race, became Cruzado dela Noche's real highlight as a six-year-old. Despite racing wide on Yonkers' 800-meter course, "Noche" was able to shrew his way to victory in 1.55.3/2011 defeating Norwegian horse Lionel and French super-star Up And Quick. As a seven-year-old, Cruzado dela Noche held on and scored a meritorious victory. In the Arthur J Cutler Memorial at the Meadowlands, he won in 1.53.6/1810a. He then took the career record of 1:50.3 race-timed finishing sixth after a quick finish in the John Cashman Memorial at the Meadowlands on Hambletonian Day. Towards the end of the season, "Noche" participated again in the World Cup race, where he made a strong race as fifth from an impossible position.

CRUZADO DELA NOCHE STUD ANALYSIS Cruzado Dela Noche first foal was born in 2021
Cruzado Dela Noche is the best performed progeny of the champion horse and stallion Muscle Massive.
Muscle Massive is a full brother to the champion stallion Muscle Mass .
Cruzado Dela Noche should be looked at for daughters of SJ’s Photo line stallions including Pegasus Spur , Bacardi Lindy should be a great match as the cross has already worked with Illawong Byron who was Australian 2yo of the year .
Great Success line mares should also be considered as his half sister is the dam of the champion trotter Six Pack who was sired by Muscle Mass.
Sundon mares of course are another great option with Group 1 winner Illawong Shimmer and the Harness Jewels runner-up Heavyweight Herobeing by Muscle Mass over Sundon dams.
As Cruzado is out of a Credit Winner mare , he is an interesting match for mares by Crazed and Dejarmbro amongst others.
Cruzado Dela Noche’s oldest progeny are foals in Europe in 2021
