there are no bounce or export options for MIDI in ardour3.

Ardour's MIDI files are all SMF (Standard MIDI File). If you want a
copy of a specific region after its been trimmed, just Fork it (right
click -> MIDI -> Fork) and then find the file inside the session tree


That's as good as it gets for now. Be aware that ardour does *not*
write tempo or meter information into MIDI files.
