Sydeston (foaled 1985) was one of the best racehorses to come out of Tasmania in the history of Australian racing, and easily the best to do so in the modern era. After winning a number of races in his home state, the plain brown gelding was transferred to Bob Hoysted in the middle of 1989. Over the next 18 months, his wins included the Caulfield, Moonee Valley, and Sandown Cups, under handicap conditions, and the Mercedes Classic, the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, and the Caulfield Stakes at weight-for-age. Sydeston was adept in all conditions, and regularly raced with Vo Rogue, Super Impose, Better Loosen Up, The Phantom, and Shaftesbury Avenue.
