The statue and park commemorate race horse Paleface Adios.

In 1969, on the property of harness-racing horse breeder, Colin Pike, a colt named Paleface Adios was born. The horse became the Phar Lap of harness racing over an eight year career that ended in 1980. Owned by Mrs. Shirley Pike, he was dubbed the "Temora Tornado". A prolific winner, he was dearly loved by trotting enthusiasts throughout Australia.
