Paynter Keeps On Fighting Illness

Zayat Stables reported Sept. 7 that its 3-year-old colt Paynter continues to improve after a rough couple of days and remains comfortable in casts he wears because of laminitis.

The Zayat family through Twitter said Paynter, who won the Haskell Invitational (gr. I) at Monmouth Park, "continues to gradually improve. He is passing manure and eating, and walks freely around his stall. His fever is under control and his protein levels have stabilized."

Very glad to hear good news coming from this camp. Praying that the weekend continues to be encouraging.
Prayers and patience! Keep on fighting Paynter we love you!
I think the patience and faith the Zayat family has shown towards this extremely ill colt is inspirational. More owners should care as much. God speed, Paynter. I'll continue to pray for you.
