Eishin Preston (Japanese: エイシンプレストン, Chinese: 栄進寳蹄) (born 1997) is an American-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who competed in Japan and Hong Kong.

Sired by Green Dancer, 1991's leading sire in France and a son of English Triple Crown champion, Nijinsky, Eishin Preston's damsire Monteverdi was the son of Lyphard, who, like Nijinsky, was a son of Northern Dancer.

Eishin Preston won important graded stakes races in Japan under trainer Shuji Kitahashi. At Kyoto Racecourse, he was second in the 2001 and 2002 Mile Championship. Sent to compete at Hong Kong's Sha Tin Racecourse, he won the 2001 Hong Kong Mile then came back in 2002 and 2003 to win back-to-back runnings of the Queen Elizabeth II Cup.
