Owned by 1959 Immortal Leo McNamara, Adios was sired by Hal Dale out of Adioo Volo at Two Gaits Farm in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he was foaled in 1940. Adios was raced for four seasons and retired in 1946. Bought by L. K. Shapiro of Los Angeles in 1946, he acquired a record of 1:57 1/2. Delvin Miller purchased him in 1948 and he was retired to Meadow Lands Farm in Pennsylvania. Adios' offspring were the champions of the sport. Seven years later he was sold for $500,000 to Hanover Shoe Farms (who purchased a two-third's interest) and Max Hempt, of Hempt Farms, Pennsylvania (who purchased a one-third interest) in the great racehorse. Later, Miller purchased back a one-third interest from Hanover Shoe Farms. Adios died at Meadow Lands Farm in 1965.
