Trainers C. Hayes/ D. Pecotich
He won six races in Melbourne including the Batman Stakes as a two to four-year-old. He was so promising he was once a ruling favourite for the Caulfield Cup. However, he broke down and was sold to north Queensland. In a magnificent training performance trainer Dino Pectich nursed Zarook back to racing form. He won the Townsville Love Memorial, Townsville Cup and NQ Cup before being brought to Brisbane in the summer of 1969. In a performance which has never been matched he won the Brisbane Handicap at 8F, the Queensland Cup at 2 miles and the Recognition Stakes at 10 ½ furlongs. Zarook returned to Brisbane in 1970 and was a closes second to Sunset Gem in the Queensland Cup. Zarook won two more races in north Queensland.
