Adios (racehorse)Edit

The Adios mold was modelled after a real horse named Adios (January 3, 1940-1965). Adios was a well-known American Standardbred stallion out of Adioo Volo and the son of Hal Dale. Adios was trained and driven by Frank Ervin. Adios was owned by Harry Warren of the Warren Bros. film studio at one time. He was a multiple world champion harness racing stallion during his career. His pacing record stood for 43 years at the Shelbyville, Indiana fair. Adios is however, most famous for his offspring he sired. He sired eight Little Brown Jug winners, which is more than any other horse. Two of his sons, Adios Butler and Bret Hanover went on the winner the Triple Crown of Harness Racing for Pacers. Adios sired 589 offspring. After his death, he was buried under his favorite apple tree. Adios also has a race and golf club named after him.
