Conn Creek was bred by Mac and Janis Spencer Murray's MJ Farms at Veguita, New Mexico, which bred the three fastest qualifiers and four of the 10 finalists.

Conn Creek is a full brother to Grade 1 winner and one-time 440-yard world-record holder Kendall Jackson, and he is a half brother to 2009 AQHA champion 3-year-old filly Alice K White.
