Chester Eatmon, who lived on the outskirts of Fredericton, was known to be Canada's oldest licensed harness racing driver at the age of 82 and was a fixture at the Fredericton Raceway for 26 years. Eatmon started training and driving at the age of 56, fulfilling a life long ambition that had been side tracked from having fathered 32 children with the same two women while working back breaking labor jobs. "I don't race for the money, although it's nice when it comes along, I race for the glory and the thrill" he said with pride.
