After failing in his only start at two, Roysyn started off his three year-old season with a win in a maiden at Avondale. He followed that up with a placing and another win in low-quality races before finishing only sixth in the Avondale Guineas, his last race before the Derby.
But he was a changed horse when the Derby came around, beating Clear Rose and favourite Interval to record a slight upset victory in the Derby of 1995. But he proved it was no fluke result later in the season, winning the Wellington Stakes and then his second Group 1 race in the Trackside Sales Stakes against older horses.
His four year-old season saw him win the Group 2 Queen Elizabeth Handicap and finish second in the Group 1 Avondale Cup and Group 2 Counties Cup.
After finishing a disappointing tenth when one of the favourites in the Auckland Cup of that season he was unable to rediscover his best form when lightly-raced in the last two years of his career.
