Paynter shows significant improvement

Paynter, the winner of this year’s Haskell Invitational Stakes at Monmouth Park in New Jersey, has displayed no signs of developing laminitis and is showing significant improvement in overcoming a severe case of colitis, according to the 3-year-old colt’s owner, Ahmed Zayat.

Zayat provided details of a veterinary report on Paynter through his Twitter account on Friday, including the results of X-rays that showed “significant sole growth” in the areas that were thought to be in danger of the onset of laminitis. Zayat also said in the tweets that the horse is “sound” and that doctors are “optimistic that his feet will not be performance limiting.”

In a phone interview, Zayat said that the horse continues to be treated for a stubborn case of colitis that has see-sawed in severity over the past month. However, as of Friday afternoon, Paynter had no fever and was “happy and comfortable,” Zayat said.
