This great bay horse was line bred to Traveler 3X4, Sykes Rondo 4X5X4 and Locks Rondo 5X5.
One of the great foundation sires of the American Quarter Horse, his influence is still seen today.
King is on the AQHA's All Time Leading Sires list & has been inducted into the [respective] Hall[s] of Fame by the AQHA, NCHA & the NRHA.
King, one of the Quarter Horse industry's cornerstones. His conformation set the standard for Quarter Horse judging for more than a decade.
Once proclaimed as the greatest horse of his time, King has become one of the American Quarter Horse industry's cornerstones. While he never won any performance points, King established a dynasty. He sired 20 AQHA Champions, 84 Performance Registers of Merit, 12 Racing Registers of Merit, three Superior Halter Award winners and 10 Superior Performance Award winners. At the time that King was born, there wasn't an American Quarter Horse Association. However, his conformation would later set the standard for American Quarter Horse judging for more than a decade. King died of a heart attack in 1958 but even now, the American Quarter Horse industry is influenced by third, fourth and fifth generation King-bred horses.
