Bred at August Belmont Jr.'s Nursery Stud near Lexington, Kentucky, Watervale's dam was the retrospective American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly for 1892. His British-born sire, Watercress, was a winner of the 1892 Prince of Wales's Stakes who was imported to the United States by prominent breeder, James Ben Ali Haggin. Watercress also sired the very good filly, Rhine Maiden. His grandsire, Springfield, was bred by Queen Victoria and was a winner of the first two runnings of the July Cup in 1876-1877 at Newmarket Racecourse.
Racing at age three, on May 1, 1911 Watervale equaled the Pimlico track record of 1:12 1/5 for six furlongs.  Ridden by Eddie Dugan, on May 17, 1911 Watervale set another Pimlico track record of 1:51 flat for 1⅛ miles in winning an American Classic, the Preakness Stakes. On July 5, 1911, Watervale broke the Canadian record for a mile and a furlong when he won the feature race at Fort Erie Racetrack in Fort Erie, Ontario. His winning time of 151 2/5 was achieved despite being slowed by his jockey before the finish line. 
At stud, Watervale met with limited success as a sire.
