The 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 Night Racing.
On each of the night meetings in season 2016/17, The Valley will stage a 55 Second Challenge heat, with each heat carrying minimum prize money of $55,000.
The trainer of the fastest horse will win a cheque valued at $50,000 by Inglis to spend at one of their auctions in 2017, which will be awarded after the last heat on Friday 24 March.
We thank our sponsors for their continued support of racing at The Valley.
