EURO IMPLOSION completed a hat-trick for the second time in three years at Hamilton Park on Saturday night.
Ridden for the first time by Sam James, he battled on gamely to land the Stay At Hampton By Hilton Hamilton Park Handicap landing a treble for the jockey and Keith Dalgleish in the process.
James, who had a full book of rides on the seven-race card, said: “He’s a really tough horse and he doesn’t like being passed. He battled back and was only just doing enough in the end - it’s the first time I’ve sat on him and he’s just so gutsy.”
Bang-in-form Dalgleish and James has earlier been on the mark with Lady Lade and Soapys Sister to initiate their near 70-1 three-timer.
