Grade I-winning millionaire Connect is an outstanding individual with top miler speed. He won six of eight lifetime starts, including the G1 Cigar Mile and G2 Pennsylvania Derby, and posted four triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures. 

Connect is one of the top sons by leading sire Curlin, out of Holy Bull mare Bullville Belle. This is the family of Grade 1 winner Backseat Rhythm, graded winner Native Regent, and stakes winners Tani Maru, Barkerville Belle, Royal Fair and Morriston Belle.

In his first crop, Connect had multiple graded stakes winners, including Grade 1 winner Rattle N Roll in the Breeders' Futurity (G1) and Hidden Connection, winning and setting a new record in the Pocahontas S. (G3).  

Success on the track continued in 2023 with Rattle N Roll tallying three more graded stakes wins.  New graded stakes winners include two-year-old Witwatersrand and three-year-old Implicated. Stakes winners include The Alys Look, who also placed in the G1 Kentucky Oaks, Hayes Strike, Apple Picker, Grannys Connection, etc.

In his first two seasons at stud, Connect was supported by 274 mares including top breeders G. Watts Humphrey Jr., Machmer Hall, Paul Pompa Jr., St. Elias Stable, Three Chimneys Farm, etc.
