Champion Harness Pacer. Although he was a multiple world champion during his racing career, he is best remembered for his tremendous success in siring future race champions. In his 19 years as a stud, he sired a total of 589 offspring. Eight of his children, including Adios Harry, Noble Adios, Shadow Wave, Adios Butler, Bullet Hanover, Henry T. Adios, Bret Hanover and Romeo Hanover each won the Little Brown Jug title. Two of his sons, Adios Butler and Bret Hanover both became winners of the Triple Crown of Harness Racing for Pacers. After he passed away, Marie Hill published a book about his life titled "Adios: The Big Daddy of Harness Racing". In his honor the "Delvin Miller Adios" race was named after him and each year it is held at The Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Pennsylvania. The Adios Golf Club in Coconut Creek, Florida was also named after him. (bio by: Whispers From The Grave)
