STEP TWO – WHAT ARE THE THEMES FOR NAMING

Names should reflect the individual horse, your state & your team.

A name should be meaningful and include the reasoning behind the name chosen. A name can become so much more powerful when you understand its story.

Names can combine the stated themes with stable nicknames, sire or dam.

Theme 1: Quintessential Icons: Think remarkable towns, suburbs, places, time honoured connections to your state. In short, the essence of your state. The first horses named from each state (Week one/Two/Three) will be a part of the Iconic State theme.

Theme 2: Sport in your state: Think the deep connection of sporting stars, sporting events and the History of sport in your state. The second horses named from each state (Week Four/Five/Six) will be a part of the Sport in your State theme.

Theme 3: Famous sporting moments in your state: Think those moments that made the state proud, like the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Queensland or the 1956 Olympics in Victoria

The last 2021 horse for each team will not have a theme for naming.

STEP THREE – GO FOR IT!

Come up with your most creative name possible that suits the horse and the theme!
