King's Bishop Stakes
The King's Bishop Stakes is a Thoroughbred horse race run annually at the Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York. The race is open to three-year-olds willing to sprint seven furlongs on dirt. The race is a Grade I event and carries a purse of $250,000. It is the biggest of the year for sprinting three-year-olds, save for the Breeders' Cup Sprint for which it is a major prep.
The race is named for King's Bishop, a horse originally owned by Craig F. Cullinan, Jr., founding president of the Houston Astros Major League Baseball club. The race was not run in 1986.
