How old were you when you bought a piece of your first racehorse? Were you in your teens, or maybe in your twenties or thirties? At age 96, Jean Arsenault is living proof that it is never too late to get into the ownership game.

As an article by The Guardian explains, Arsenault is now one of 10 equal shareholders that has bought a piece of a Brandons Cowboy yearling that was sold at the recently-conducted Atlantic Classic Yearling Sale.

The piece states that Arsenault started attending the races in Prince Edward Island back in 1980 after having relocated from Ontario. She has only gotten to the races a few times over the past couple of years, but she is eager to keep up to date on the bay filly as she prepares for her career debut, which is expected to come some time next spring.

The article explains that Arsenault met the yearling, Im Not Lisa, for the first time this past Friday. A photo of their meeting appears below.
