Veterinarian Very Concerned About Paynter

Paynter, ridden by Rafael Bejarano, wins the Haskell Invitational on Haskell Invitational Day at Monmouth Park Race Course in Oceanport, New Jersey on July 29, 2012.

Paynter on Tuesday night was described as being seriously ill by Dr. Mark Cheney, the respected equine veterinarian who is overseeing his treatment, who said the Haskell Invitational winner has colitis - an inflammation of the colon - and that a principle concern now is also founder.

"I'm worried to death," Cheney said in a telephone interview. "You've got to keep your fingers crossed. Just hope and pray."

Paynter was taken late Sunday to the Upstate Equine Medical Center in Schuylerville, N.Y., nine miles northeast of Saratoga. He had been at Saratoga for several days after arriving from Belmont Park. This is the second time in less than a month that Paynter has become so ill that he needed to be sent to a veterinary clinic.

Steve Haskin, of the BH, is reporting a slight improvement this A.M. per Dr. Cheney. See the story at the BH site.
Please recover Paynter! This is terrible news!!
This makes me very sad, it actually made me tear up. I'm praying he doesn't have founder and that his colitis is treatable.
