July 25, 2018 - 6:37 pmI fondly remember Mario when

I fondly remember Mario when he was a very young man helping his Dad, Gilles at Blue Bonnets . He was an energetic kid with an engaging personality who always seemed to be smiling . Having seen Mario turn into a fine horseman and a good man was not surprising because he had the " Lachance Bloodlines " which made it an almost certainty that he would be a success . Sincere condolences to his spouse and children and especially to his father Gilles who is one of the greats in the sport of harness horse racing . The Lachance family has lost a wonderful man but may his memories comfort you in the days ahead .

We stabled beside him at Blue Bonnets in the early 90's and found him so polite and helpful a true gentleman.
