Grade 1 winner K One King has been purchased by Gunpowder Farms LLC and will be relocated to stand at Margaux Farm in Midway, Ky., for an advertised fee of $3,500 when the foal stands and nurses.

The 17-year-old Apalachee horse previously stood at Louisiana Stallion Station in Carencro, La.

On the racetrack, K One King won six of 12 starts for earnings of $683,010, highlighted by a win in the 2000 Oaklawn Handicap. He competed on the 1999 Kentucky Derby trail, winning the Presidents Stakes and the John Battaglia Memorial Stakes at Turfway Park. K One King subsequently posted a runner-up finish in the Grade 2 GalleryFurniture.com Stakes, now known as the Spiral Stakes, at Turfway before finishing eighth behind Charismatic in the Kentucky Derby.
