King's Bishop (1969-1981) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred in Kentucky by Warner L. Jones, Jr., he was sired by U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Round Table. He was out of the mare Spearfish, a descendant of the very important sire, Nearco.
King's Bishop was owned by Craig F. Cullinan, Jr., founding president of the Houston Astros Major League Baseball club, who purchased him as a yearling at the Keeneland Sales for $72,000. Cullinan raced him through 1972 then sold him to Allaire du Pont who raced him in 1973 under her Bohemia Stable banner. King's Bishop won several important Graded stakes races and retired with a record of eleven wins in twenty-eight starts.
