Jeep 55 Second Challenge

The Jeep 55 Second Challenge is a pure test of speed over 955 metres.

The barriers are positioned in the 1000 metre chute and the challenge will be to see which horse can break the 55 second mark across the City Jeep Night Racing Season.

On each of the 16 night meetings in season 2014/15, Moonee Valley will stage a Jeep 55 Second Challenge heat, with each heat carrying prizemoney of $55,000. The Jeep 55 Second Challenge heat will be programmed as Race 5 at each of the night meetings.

Last season trainer Anthony Freedman with Minaj took the keys to the car. The big question is will the 55 second mark be broken again this year? The only way to find out is to be on track at Moonee Valley.

The trainer of the horse that runs the quickest time across the 16 race series will win a Jeep Grand Cherokee with thanks to Jeep.
