Some of his famous get are: Royal King, King Glo, Black Gold King, King's Pistol, King Flit, Easter King, Cactus King, Poco Bueno, Continental King, Power Command, Hank H, & Gay Widow. Even though King threw speed, he's best known for his disposition, tremendous performance ability, and cow sense passed on to his offspring. With the growth in cutting, cow horse, roping, and reining events, King's bloodlines are treasured more than ever.
