Paynter heading to rehab facility

Haskell winner Paynter will leave Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center on Sunday for an unspecified rehabilitation and layup facility, where he is expected to remain for two or three months before attempting a return to race training, his owner, Ahmed Zayat, said Friday via Twitter.

Zayat said he would announce at 6 p.m. Friday which farm will receive Paynter for rehabilitation.

“We are declaring VICTORY!!!” Zayat tweeted Friday. “Paynter is a rare breed of Thoroughbred horse that has the determination, strength and heart. Paynter has beaten colitis, laminitis, and a nasty abscess and today we are proud of our special colt.”

Zayat said the 3-year-old colt’s last set of diagnostics, performed Friday, showed “his temp is normal, his blood work is perfect, his feet are sound and healthy, his lungs sound great.”
