Paynter had a leisurely jog on Tuesday
and will resume galloping on Wednesday, according to Jim Barnes,
assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert.
“Everything is good,” said Barnes.
Paynter hails from the same barn as
Bodemeister, who was second in the Derby and Preakness for Zayat
Stables, and will attempt to continue to carry the momentum established
by stablemate Game On Dude, who was a devastating 7 ¼-length winner of
Saturday’s Grade 2 Californian at Betfair Hollywood Park.
“That was a good race and a good win,” Barnes said of Game On Dude’s performance.
