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. First run in 1984 as a Listed stakes race, since 1999 the race has been a Grade I event, and since 2012 has carried a purse of $500,000. 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 was not run in 1986.
