In the Schuylerville Purse run at Saratoga Springs in late July 1927, the filly placed second to Pennant Queen. She ran in a juvenile special at Saratoga Race Course in August 1927 as a 2-year-old. In a field of thirteen Bateau, owned by Walter M. Jeffords, Sr., Bateau lost by a length, again to Pennant Queen, a daughter of Pennant and Misty Queen.
On November 4, 1927 Bateau was ridden by Earl Sande, a most noted jockey of the 1920s. Sande was suspended from horse racing, stripped of his racing badge, and ejected from the Pimlico Race Course after race stewards ruled that he intentionally fouled Reigh Count during the Pimlico Futurity feature race. Aboard Bateau, Sand tried unsuccessfully to elbow Reigh Count into the rail as the colt and Bateau came into the home stretch ahead of fifteen horses. The filly came in third following Glade and Petee Wrack. The Maryland Racing Commission reinstated Sande during a special meeting on March 22, 1928.
On June 1, 1929, Bateau defeated male counterparts to win the Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park with a time of 2:03 2/5. The event for older thoroughbreds also included Petee Wrack, owned by John R. Macomber. This 4-year-old colt finished second, a head back of Bateau. Bateau's winning purse was $14,100. That year she also won the Whitney Handicap at Saratoga Race Course and the Autumn Handicap at Havre de Grace Racetrack.
