Paul Pompa Jr.'s Connect, winner of the G3 Westchester Stakes in his last start, will be forced to miss the G1 Metropolitan Handicap June 10 due to an injury.

“Connect has unfortunately emerged from his last workout with a minor injury that will keep him out of the Met Mile,” trainer Chad Brown told the Daily Racing Form.
