Wakeful was one of the great Thoroughbred mares of the Australian turf. The bay filly by Trenton from Insomnia was foaled in 1896, but did not commence racing until she was a four year old. She had 44 starts, winning 25 races, was second 12 times and third 4 times. She was unplaced in only 3 races.

At her third start she won the VATC Oakleigh Plate, followed that by winning the VRC Newmarket Handicap and then the AJC Doncaster Handicap. Wakeful went on to win races such as the AJC Plate and VRC Champion Stakes at 3 miles.

At her last start she ran second in the 1903 VRC Melbourne Cup carrying the huge impost for a mare of 10st (63.5 kg) and conceded the winner Lord Cardigan 3st 6lbs (22 kg). After finishing racing and going to stud, Wakeful produced the 1918 Melbourne Cup winner Night Watch.
