The bay Bodemeister filly waiting for the final quarter-mile to do her best running, circling from sixth and going four wide out of the turn and rolling by the leaders in the final sixteenth to win going away.
Owned by St. Elias Stables, LLC, Waitingforaspark was bred by C. & B. Kidder, N. Cole, Voute and N. Strong. She is out of the unraced Monarchos mare Sparky Three, who is a half-sister to WinStar Farm's champion stallion Distorted Humor.
Bodemeister is the nation's leading Second-Crop sire on the heels of Always Dreaming's scintillating victory in the 2017 Kentucky Derby (G1). He also leads his crop by graded stakes winners and stakes wins, and ranks second by 2017 stakes winners.
