Wait for Nairobi is the fourth stakes horse this year for Carpe Diem, which ranks third among all Third-Crop sires for 2021.
After breaking from post seven, Wait for Nairobi got a three-wide trip for all of the 6 1/2-furlongs. She steadily advanced from seventh to third on the turn, and was head-to-head for the lead at the top of the stretch. She battled with Igloo for about a furlong before pulling clear to secure the win.
The victory upped Wait for Nairobi's earnings to $73,458. Out of Evrobi, she is a half-sister to Debutante S. (G1) winner Tell a Kelly.
