Paynter Doing Well After Comeback Victory

Zayat Stable’s Paynter, who made a triumphant return Friday at Betfair Hollywood Park, came out of the race strong, according to Mike Marlow, assistant to Hall of Famer Bob Baffert.

Paynter’s successful battle against colitis and laminitis has captured the imagination of racing fans everywhere. For a half-hour after his victory Friday, the hashtag #PowerUpPaynter was trending fifth on Twitter, meaning Paynter was the fifth most popular subject in the entire United States.

“He’s real good this morning,” said Marlow. “He came back pumped up, like he didn’t even run. He wasn’t tired at all.

“He ate well last night and he’s happy this morning. He’s an amazing horse. His owners couldn’t have been happier if it was a Grade I. It was like a Grade I to them. The whole thing was good for racing.”

Paynter’s winning time for seven furlongs over Cushion Track was 1:21.86. Where the 4-year-old son of Awesome Again will run next has yet to be determined.

Nothing exotic about Paynter’s name: It came from a fellow who was painting Baffert’s new house.
