30/07/02 Hall of Fame Horse Inductee: Wakeful
Wakeful, the horse who rivals Sunline as being the best ever mare to race in Australia, has been inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame in Melbourne tonight.

Wakeful was a late-starter as a racehorse, not competing until she was four but she certainly made up for lost time winning 19 weight-for-age races during her career.

At her third start she won the Oakleigh Plate then followed up with the Newmarket Handicap and the Doncaster before running third in the Sydney Cup, a race she later won carrying 60.5 kilograms - a weight carrying record for a mare.

Wakeful also ran second in the 1903 Melbourne Cup carrying 63.5 kilograms.


Mare bred in Australia in 1896
