Nominations are closed and the voting is over… Zoustar x Shack has now been named. Your winning name: Zoushack. Read more here.
Who is this horse?
Zoushack was purchased by miRunners at the 2018 Gold Coast Magic Millions for $275,000 with leading trainer David Hayes and his Lindsay Park team coming on board to train the colt.
Following the proven miRunners model, the horse was split into 1,000 ownership units with members of the public available to purchase ownership in the horse for only $275 plus a $15 monthly fee for their first unit ($5 for any additional units).
He sold out last week and joins three other miRunners horses who have had all 1,000 units purchased. There are two other horses with units currently available: you can see them by clicking on Our Stable.
Why am I suggesting names for this horse?
From day one of miRunners’ existence, it has been about the collective power of the public and the racing community.

As well as making racehorse ownership affordable, everyday Australians have been involved in naming miRunners’ first two horses, Saganaki and Shezawitness, as well as designing the miRunners racing silks.
Allowing the public to submit names for the next horse is a continuation of that mantra. Please note that while everyone can submit a name, you need to be an owner to vote for the winning name.
