There were two nursery races with Meadowland Olympic (Evans Newcastle Emlyn) and Hello Vera (Lloyd Painscastle) claimed the wins.

Lakeview Meg (Atherton-Rees Narberth) the well thought of young mare driven as usual by Mathew (Mr Cool) Tromans took the second Novice heat from Shakalakka Boom Boom (Thomas Llandeilo) and Ithon Hannah (Bufton Dolau).

For One Night Only (Wilson Llanfihangel ar arth) with Rhun Wilson at the controls added a prestigious Penybont win to their sub 2 minute win on the all-weather track on Saturday as they beat Greenhill Cliff (Williams Brecon) with one of the seasonís leading mares, Zestthewayilikeit (Jones Evenjobb) in third. Habberley Haste (Lloyd New Radnor) and driven by Andrew Hardwick too the second Grade B heat with Chinatown Lucky (Bevan Builth) in second and Meadowland Maverick (Jones Evenjobb) in third.

Infinatey (Jones Sennybridge) and Mathew Tromans navigated the Penybont track with no difficulty to claim the first Grade A heat from the grey Scoobys Dream (Williams Brecon) while training stable-mate Ithon Inmate (Price Brecon) was third. Lakeside Pan (Elder New Quay) took the second Grade A heat with son Wayne Elder in the seat in front of Best of the Fleet (Lewis Welshpool) and Meadowland Hasty (Price Brecon).

Meadowland Olympic (Evans Newcastle Emlyn) on her promotion into the Baby Novice gave driver Mathew Tromans another win as they came home ahead of Evenwood Thumps up (Lewis Llanyre) and Pendragon (Powell Merthyr Cynog).

The Grade A final at Penybont is the ultimate race of the season and this year the breeder of the winning horse received a bonus of £500 which added to the excitement of the occasion. It was Ithon Inmate (Price Brecon) a horse bred by Brynfawr Stables, just a few miles away from Penybont, that swept home much to the delight of trainer/driver Derek Pritchard as they were being chased home by stable-mate Infinatey (Jones Sennybridge) while Lakeside Pan (Elder New Quay) was close behind in third.

The final race of the day was the mile and a half, a long race where stamina and timing are of equal importance. It was Mathew Tromans claiming his fifth 2016 Penybont win on Habberley Playboy (Johns/Gittins Shrewsbury) as they came home in front of a more settled Dernol Duke (Perks Presteigne) with the baby Life Today (Hughes Builth) in third. Mathew Tromans secured the leading driver award, on a day which he will always remember, most drivers are happy with one win, but to have 5 is beyond anyoneís dream.
