Amman Valley Results

Jump Straight to Results

The substituted meeting held at the all weather track at Tairgwaith near Ammanford on Saturday provided good competitive racing while the grass tracks were rained off. Even the hard track was a bit sticky, but the times were very level throughout the afternoon, providing plenty of entertainment for the public.

In the nursery Ithon Legacy with Aled Davies at the controls sped away from the gate giving the Hardwick Jones partnership from Llanbister a well deserved victory ahead of the impressive Meadowland Olympic (Evans Newcastle Emlyn) while the unusually named Ook whos (Evans Brecon) coming on only his second appearance ran well to be third.

Zestthewayilikeit with owner Oliver (OJ) Jones from Evenjobb on board added another win to her seasonís successes in the first Novice heat coming home in front of Touch of Chaps (Randell Ammanford) and Rhyds Backchat (Elder Blaencelyn). In the second Novice heat Purple Connection (Willliams Llanwern) repeated his win last time out in the hands of trainer Andrew Hardwick with Fronfelin Duchess (Lewis Efailwen) in second and Tillies Larg (Evans Brecon) in third.

The veteran Blackfield Buddy (Barton Clunderwen) ran like a two year old to claim top honours in the first Grade B heat under the guiding influence of daughter Bridget Lewis, while backmarker Habberley Playboy (Johns & Gittins, Shrewsbury) had to be content with second and Precious Cargo (Gwatkin Evenjobb) was third. Meadowland Maverick driven as usual by owner Oliver (OJ) Jones from Evenjobb ran an inspired race in the second grade B heat to claim victory from Brywins Jo Jo (Jones Ammanford) and Habberley Haste (Lloyd New Radnor).

Wellfieldlifestyle (Edmunds Porthcawl) with the athletic Mark White at the controls won the first Grade A heat from Lakeside Pan (Elder New Quay) with Strike a Light (Meaney Merthyr) in third. In the second grade A heat Ithon Inmate (Price Brecon) surged down the home straight to be first under the wire for trainer-driver Derek Pritchard while Scoobys Dream (Williams Brecon) was second and No Mercy (Weigel Llanddewi Velfrey) came home in third.

A full entry of nine runners in the Baby Novice race ensured plenty of interest but Lakeside Glory (Jones Brecon) flew from the gate, urged on by Shane Eggerton in the seat, to dictate proceedings and they swept home in front of Tessaleenie (Davies Huntington) with Ceiron Blue Boy (Weigel Llanddewi Velfrey) in third.

The Novice final highlighted the talents of these young horses making their way up the racing ladder with Zestthewayilikeit looking as if she will make it all the way to the top, as she and her young owner Oliver (OJ) Jones from Evenjobb were first passed the post followed on by Rhyds Backchat (Elder Blaencelyn) and Tillies Larg (Evans Brecon).

In the Grade B final Oliver claimed a back to back double as his other horse Meadowland Maverick claimed another victory giving young Oliver Jones four wins on the day. In second was the ever reliable Habberley Haste (Lloyd New Radnor) while Blackfield Buddy (Barton Clunderwen) was third.

Wellfieldlifestyle owned by Neil Edmunds from Porthcawl and driven by his nephew Mark White romped home in the Grade A final, the premiere race of the day in front of the fast finishing No Mercy (Weigel Llanddewi Velfrey) and Ithon Inmate (Price Brecon).

Next week racing returns to the grass with the prestigious Aberystwyth meeting alongside Cardigan Bay on Saturday July 16th starting at 1pm.
