An outstanding individual with top miler speed. Winner of the stallion-making Cigar Mile (G1) posting a 106 Beyer, the 4th highest up to a mile in 2016. In eight starts he won six including four stakes races where he defeated G1 winners Gun Runner, Nyquist, Exaggerator, Cupid, etc. In a career where he earned more than $1.3 million, Connect retired to stud as one of the most exciting sons of leading General sire Curlin.
“I’ve been very fortunate to own many top class racehorses, but Connect is in another league. When it came to determine the future of his stallion career, the best choice was Lane’s End.”
– Paul Pompa, owner
