Adios

(c) Janice Cox    (c) Janice Cox

Adios is a portrait model of the multiple world champion Standardbred pacer. Introduced in 1969, the mold has the round "Breyer Molding Co." stamp on an inside hind leg and slightly later models (probably beginning around 1970) also include the "U.S.A." stamp.  Some "U.S.A." models also have the "B" stamp. It was sculpted by Chris Hess based on a piece by James Slick and is Breyer's mold #50.

A symbol means that I don't yet have a picture of that model. If you can help, please see the Help Wanted section. Clicking on any photo below will open a larger version of that picture.
