The sprinting conterpart to the Travers is the $250,000 King's Bishop Stakes (G1), a 7 furlong event for 3-year-olds only. Amsterdam (G2) and Jersey Shore Stakes (G3) winner Discreetly Mine was sent off as the even-money favorite in the field of 7, over 3-1 second choice D'Funnybone, second in the Carry Back (G2) after winning the Woody Stephens (G2). Bulldogger, an allowance winner last out and making his stakes debut, was the 4-1 third choice on the board.

Discreetly Mine went the lead soon after the start and he set fractions of 21.90 and 44.11 under jockey John Velazquez, with Bulldogger pressing the pace in second a length behind and Hurricane Ike stalking them in third.. Entering the stretch, Bulldogger tired badly allowing Discreetly Mine to open a 1 1/2 length lead over Hurricane Ike at the 1/8 pole. Bank Merger, 5th early, put in a string 4-wide rally late but was left with too much ground to make up as Discreetly Mine cruised under the line 1 1/4 lengths in front in 1:23.16. It was another 2 lengths back to Latigo Shore third.
