It has been an exciting day for owners of the Zoustar x Shack colt with the name voted and chosen by the owners finally announced.
Following a public nomination period that saw over 750 names entered, the list was whittled down to a top 30 with owners then voting for the winning submission.
The winning name is: Zoushack.
A merger of the colt’s sire (Zoustar) and dam (Shack), it is a name that is easily said and gives a strong acknowledgment to the horse’s impressive sire who has been catching the eye of so many racing lovers.

Zoushack is a 2016 colt being trained by David Hayes and was bought for $275,000 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions. As with all miRunners horses, ownership was split into 1,000 units – each costing $275 (with a monthly fee of $15).
With Zoushack already sold out, you can still buy into affordable ownership by choosing one of the two horses currently available: Rubick x Slainte (trained by Bjorn Baker) and Your Song x Sheeznodoubt (trained by Tony Gollan).
You can even meet Your Song x Sheeznodoubt at our event in Brisbane. Click here for free tickets.
The owner who submitted the winning name first was Scott Hogg who has a family history of ownership.
RECENT NEWS: What you get when you own with miRunners
“Dad has bought me into racing at a young age: he owned standardbred horses for harness racing and while I’ve grown up as a racing person, I’ve never had the chance to own horses,” explained Scott.
“I saw the miRunners concept and instantly liked it: I don’t want to outlay much money but I want to have interest in having a runner. For me, the money is irrelevant: I’m in this for the thrill of the racing.
“My wife and I have a unit each: she owns in the Shezawitness filly while I have the Zoushack colt. My parents send me email updates from their horses and I send them the email updates on our horses and it’s great fun: the difference is we’re not paying as much as our parents.
“The experience is awesome, we tell everyone that we’ve got two cats, two dogs and two horses!”
