Mid Wales Trotting Racing

Jump Straight to Results

The second race meeting of the season brought blue skies and lovely conditions at the all weather track at Tai’rgwaith near Ammanford.

The afternoon began as usual with the two Nursery races which provide an introduction to racing for young horses and inexperienced drivers. In the first nursery Talavary Zara with Oliver (OJ) Jones on board ran a superb race for owner Ollie Preece from Llanbister beating first time out Hilltop Recon (Lloyd New Radnor) into second place while Ayr Romance (Eggerton Norton Canon) was third. Garth Vader (Williams Brecon) another horse on his racing debut took the second Nursery with his trainer pilot Andrew Hardwick with Meadowland Maverick and the inexperienced Ollie Preece in second while Posezest (Bevan Builth Wells) was third.

There was an accident in the next race, the Grade B which caused it to be declared void and after some delay the Novice race followed with only two entries. Lakeview Meg (Atherton Rees Narberth) took the spoils from Purple Connection (Williams Llanwern).

The Grade A proved to be a good race with the ever popular grey twelve year old Scoobies Dream (Williams Brecon) on his season’s debut proving he has lost none of his ability of yesteryear by sweeping to the front on the home straight to claim another win for his trainer Andrew Hardwick, in front of Chinatown Kolt (Jones Llanllwni) and the fast finishing Lakeside Pan (Elder, New Quay).

The final race of the day was the Baby Novice race where Andrew Hardwick claimed another winner this time on the up and coming Ceiron Blue Boy for the Weigel family from Llanddewi Velfrey) who produced a good performance ahead of last week’s winner Ithon Nitro (Bevan Builth Wells) while Bad Romance (Eggerton Norton Canon) was third.

Next week racing resumes on the grass track at Knighton on Saturday May 20th starting at 1.30 pm.
