We can only do so much with veterinary medicine, some comes from within the horse, and some comes from above. I believe this with all my heart
Paynter & the Zayats have shown the world what racing fans have always known- the Thoroughbred determination and fighting spirit. I too, have kept Paynter in constant prayer, written to the Zayats offering support and prayers. In return, I, along with fans all over the world, have been given complete transparency, the anguish, the tears, the ups and downs and finally the victory cry from Mr. Zayat. As a veterinary nurse, I was well aware of the odds of Paynter's survival- pretty dismal it seemed. But through it all, keeping Paynter comfortable was paramount to the Zayats, and he repaid them by fighting through colitis, DIC, laminitis and finally the abscess. I hope that he is able to return to the track, but as always, Mr. Zayat is leaving the final decision up to Paynter.
