Paynter still missing in action

Paynter, who became ill within 48 hours of his powerful victory in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park on July 29, left that track July 31 bound for the Mid-Atlantic Equine Medical Center in Ringoes, N.J., according to the required paperwork filed in the Monmouth Park stall office when he left the premises, an employee of the stall office said Wednesday.

The Mid-Atlantic Equine Medical Center is located approximately 60 miles west of Monmouth Park. According to the center’s website, one of the services offered is internal medicine.

The current condition of Paynter, and his whereabouts, have been difficult to ascertain in recent days, because his connections have refused to disclose detailed information.

Good mr. Thirsty thanks for the update. Happy things are ok with Paynter.
He is going to work tomorrow. So this story was published a little late.
Ed Fontaine in NY post today said the horse has "lingering issues" from the fever, but no other information was forthcoming
It could be a very big deal if he is still at a medical clinic. Published workouts are only part of the conditioning equation. Horses also walk, jog, and/or gallop as part of their normal exercise routines.
I certainly hope the colt is OK - but why all the mystery? If he's sick he's sick. No shame in that - horses get sick, just like humans do. If he has been in an equine clinic since the Haskell, he's missed training - does this mean we will have a wide open Traverse with neither of the big Baffert/Zayat colts running?
Obviously, Paynter is still sick and they either aren't going to tell us what is wrong with him or they don't know
I hope he is alright.
I wouldn't work him out much.
So what if Paynter hasn't had a serious workout neither has Alpha, Neck N' Neck, and Nonios. So what's the big deal?
