A great bitch passed on Oct 19, 2013 at the age of 14-1/2 years. Her passing cannot slide by without notice. Many on the West Coast have fond memories of Telli.
Don and I remember Telli back to her Derby years. We were fortunate to watch her then and see her grow up to run in all age stakes. She was always a strong competitor. In her day, she did more than her share of winning and placing against many of the top dogs. It has been said that she had a work ethic. She certainly did and when she stood by your side, you knew you had a team player who would give you her all. Talent? There is no doubt about it. Telli had talent and she had smarts. She earned her retirement years.
We got to see Telli this year around her 14th birthday and are thankful that we did. Telli passed away in her sleep. Farewell to a great bitch. Our thoughts are with Gary and Mary Ahlgren and Ryan Gelardi.
