Paleface Adios ... A Pacing Phenomenon by Brian 'Sal' Kelly details the remarkable, record making racing career of the champion pacer.
Thought to have been published in 1980, the book is written with feeling and deep insight into the career of the horse 'Sal' Kelly was proud to describe as The Greatest.
Paleface Adios achieved the greatest record of any horse in the country.
At the time of publication, he had chalked up a record 86 wins and 52 placings from an equally incredible 187 excursions throughout Australia and New Zealand.
