Update on Paynter: Yesterday was a bad day; they thought they would lose him. He has shown improvement today. Hope his improvement continues. An hour ago Ahmed Zayat said on Twitter:

"temp has broke. His diarrhea has slowed down significantly. His lungs are the same as yesterday. Bloodwork came perfect."

Thank god.

T-bred players won't know the name, but there was a famous harness named Bye Bye Max, a pacer, who nearly died from Colitis X... and this was back in '73.  He pulled through and came back as good as he ever was.  Hopefully Paynter will follow suit.

From Ahmed Zayat an hour ago on Twitter and this is not good:

Paynter update: Paynter continues to fight bravely his colitis. Today has been a tough day he is giving us mixed signals while his appetite has improved and his temperature is normal. His blood work has been good. Today we had to deal with new issues that arised at the first time. He has developed an infection where the catheter is placed and his angel Laura was having a hard time finding an unswollen vain to insert it. It is important because this is where he gets his nutrients medications. Other problem for the first time. He has developed some clotting in his blood vains as a result of low protein. We have been treating him with plasma. It has been an emotional tough day for Laura and myself as we are not dealing with issues that apply to comfort and pain. We need to be very careful of how to deal with those serious issues. I personally have ZERO tolerance for the word suffering. It is important that we give our warrior a chance to fight and battle his illness but also keeping our eye on our goal which is to get him healthy and happy but not at any cost. Paynter has been good to all of us and we need to treat him with the love and dignity that he deserves. Laura and I and all his vets and Bob Baffert are particularly conscious of that. We once again ask for your prayers as the next 24 hours will tell the tale. Please god give me the strength and the grace to do what's right with my horse and to give my vets the wisdom to make the right calls. And to bless Paynter with the courage to fight this very tough battle.

On Twitter 10 minutes ago from Ahmed Zayat:

Paynter update: here is what we are trying to do to help paynter fight his battle, it will take a miracle but he is a fighter. Paynter had mild signs of foot pain today and mild radiographic changes. We flew in Dr. Bryan Fraley, an affiliate of the Hagyard Equine Medical Center to evaluate him this afternoon and placed casts to support his feet. He was very good for the procedure . His appetite has been greatly improved today and the diarrhea is improving. We are hopeful but are taking it day by day and his comfort is our first concern. Please pray the hardest you can. We still want to give him the chance to fight it as long as he is telling us he wants to.

We are all hoping for no more setbacks. Update on Twitter from Ahmed Zayat:

Paynter update: Paynter continues to amaze his vets by his resilience, class, charm, determination, what a horse. Indeed he is so special. Paynter has been walking comfortably all day. This afternoon his diarrhea resolved and he passed formed manure. He was mildly uncomfortable when defecating, which is not uncommon in horses with colitis as the diarrhea resolves. He has had an intermittent low grade fever but his blood work continues to be normal. He continues to be treated aggressively. Please keep your good prayers and energy coming our champ is fighting and fighting hard.

Creative Cause also has a Twitter account and he said:

I have never been so happy to hear about another horse defacating. Go Paynter.

Ahmed Zayat on Twitter within the hour giving an update:

"I am happy finally to go to my full and regular update on our beloved Paynter. I need to apologize for the last couple of days have been traveling, had a house full of family. I have asked @LJavsicasVMD our angel to kindly update his fans the last two days you can continue to follow her at that address.

Back to Paynter, His feet are very comfortable and perfect. we see no issue there for a full recovery from his mild laminitis since again he has shown zero separation, rotation or sinking. We are scheduling to fly in his vets/ farrier Dr. Bryan Farley on friday to remove his three casts and to examine his feet. fingers crossed. We are hoping for a happy update so please continue your prayers and good wishes.

Not only Paynter is responding his caretakers led by Dr. Laura and his group of renound vets are being very encouraged by your support. let alone myself and my family. Regarding his other issues mainly colitis, he is still fighting that evil disease very hard. He does have his moments with his battles. His last 3 days have been very tough on him while his blood works looks healthy and perfect and his lungs and other organs look healthy. His appetite fluctuates day to day. his attitude has been happier and brighter. the only major issue that is giving me sleepless nights is his fever. He has been spiking fevers since saturday while it is up and down it has been well above normal. It seems to us that while his colon is healing it will take sometime. but it is very evident that he still has a very severe case of inflammation of his GI track and some thickening on the ultra sound which is not good.

We believe he has beaten the odds so far and he been fighting so couragerously and this colt really wants to live and fight we have been giving him all chances on doing so. Neither I or Laura or our families want to give up. But he really needs to get better and we need to help him get his fever back to normal like last week. So we decided after consulting with world experts in that disease and internal medicine specialists that we now need to be more aggressive and go ALL WAR on these bacterial infections that he has in his gut and colon and to help combat it by using new and different combinations of more than one antibiotic. Of course the decision was not an easy one because we want to be merciful to his sensitive stomach and colon as well as we didn't want to start the onsite of another episode of diherria. I have given my full support and approval to our vets to start this new remedy yesterday.

We been praying very hard that it will be the last major attempt to help him fight this vicious battle with his colitis the imflammation. They have decided not to use an oral antibiotics but to have it administrated trough a catheder with a strong mix of more than one medicine. We are very hopeful that God willing he will respond.

Some positive signs to report since yesterday his fever been back to normal for the first time since friday. His manure has been ok. No diherria. Which tells us that he is showing signs of response to the changes in his meds. so thats all for now. We will continue praying the next 2-3 days are pretty vital in his recovery. If we are able to get those improvements we can start breathing a sigh of relief that this warrior have WON two major battles."

Ahmed Zayat on Twitter within the hour:

A team of ultra sound specialists and internal medicine specialists discussed all their findings and found out that they can help him surgically and the infection and the abscess has been confined to one area in his cecum which in itself is the best news since it is the best possible location to have an abscess of that nature. You would want it in that area. The cecum is the appendix but not vestigial as it is in people which means that surgery would definitely help him and it is in an area where it can be opened up and removed and clean the infection that has been the cause of his fevers. They also confirmed that the colon has started healing in fact they were happy all in all with most of his intestine and the repair that has been healing in his colon.

After serious and long debated discussions and with consultation with no less than 12 different specialists, I feel extremely comfortable, calm and at peace with myself for giving them my approval and the green light to go ahead and operate on Paynter. I feel Paynter has fought a lot of battles, he needs to win the war, Count my word fans. Paynter is a warrior, our warrior and champion will win the war. I ask you for your prayers and prayers and prayers. Please god deliver him a speedy recovery. May we all merit in his strength and courage.

Paynter will UNDERGO surgery tomorrow morning at 9 am. It is expected that the surgery should last around 3 hours and a recovery period after the surgery for an hour and a half. Please god may I deliver good news for you all tomorrow.. say a prayer.

Thanks for all your prayers and please continue to pray for a FULL recovery, I am so upbeat. His vets did a superb job and they are extremely optimistic.

Ahmed Zayat on Twitter right now:

Paynter Update: Breaking news!!! Paynter has won the war.. dear fans thank you very much for all your prayers and thoughts and good vibes. Our Paynter this brave warrior. Has taken on A LOT of battles and today on his behalf and the behalf of his skillful vet team. we are declaring VICTORY!!! Paynter is a rare breed of thorughbred horse that has the detemermination, strength and heart. Paynter has beaten colitis, laminintis and a nasty abscess and today we are proud of our special colt. Today done our last set of diagnostics. His temp is normal, his blood work is perfect, his feet are sound and healthy, his lungs sound great. All in all we have a very happy and healthy horse. He has gained an additional 11 pounds in the last two days on top of the 24 pounds pounds before that. His medical team is very confident of his full recovery, plans are being finalized today for Paynter to leave New Bolton Medical Center on Sunday to go back into a rehab layup facility for the next 2-3 months and than finally return to the track where he loves and belongs. We should all continue to hope for a full recovery and to see our champ happy and healthy for 2013 racing calendar!! We have narrowed down the choices to 3 rehab centers. I am very nervous for him to leave all his beloved vets but my tears of joy will only make it worth it when I know he will have the right farm taking care of him. I have personally called and interviewed all these farms. A decision will be announced at 6 PM today.

Paynter to make his return Friday
June 9, 2013 by J.J. Hysell

Justin Zayat reported via twitter Sunday afternoon that Paynter is set to make his return to racing on Friday at Hollywood Park.
 
Paynter, trained by Bob Baffert, is entered in race 7 with jockey Rafael Bejarano set to ride.
 
Paynter, winner of the 2012 Haskell Stakes, overcame a life-threatening bout with colitis and laminitis last year and has posted a steady stream of works toward his return.

I know that they will take care of him but does anyone know if this will be an allowance race (softspot) as I think in this case, Paynter deserves time?

Back in the day, many high priced horses were treated this way but who knows today.   I think Baffert is a smart man and will spot him right.   If so it won't be a good betting race for someone like me.

"The 4-year-old son of Awesome Again will make his first start since last July for trainer Bob Baffert in a seven-furlong allowance event for non-winners of three over the Cushion Track at Betfair Hollywood Park June 14. It will be Paynter's first race over a synthetic track.
 
Paynter faces seven opponents as the 124-pound co-highweight with Rafael Bejarano aboard. It is the seventh race on the program with a 4 p.m. PDT post time."

Thanks Mary Ann, the race is much as I envisioned.   Bejarano will have to use his Spiderman senses to feel anything in Paynters stride to know if he stays sound throughout the race.   If he wins, there will be little profit but if he pulls up, there could be much to be lost with my way of betting.   

I won't bet this race but ill make an exception and go to the track just to cheer for him.

It may just be an allowance race but it's going to be a very special race. Hope he stays safe. From an ESPN article:

"He shook free of pneumonia only to land in the grip of something worse, endotoxemia. Toxins in his blood were attacking him. Acute fever and diarrhea squeezed him dry. And when the fever finally broke, an even more efficient killer came after him, laminitis.

Some advised Paynter's owner, Ahmed Zayat, to end it, which might have been expedient, given the insurance, and justifiable, given the horse's condition. But Paynter argued otherwise, eloquently and strongly, every hour of every day, with an infrangible will to live. And, too, he had his "angel," as Zayat described her, at his side, Laura H. Javsicas, VMD, DACVIM.

Ten months ago, Paynter balked at death's threshold. Friday, last year's Haskell winner is to return to competition, in an otherwise inconspicuous allowance event, the seventh race of the day at Hollywood Park. Whether his comeback meets with victory or defeat won't matter so much as his presence, his being there, on the track for a race, with that long spoor of illness and precariousness and rehabilitation behind him, for his return objectifies determination, reifies courage. Or, as Zayat puts it, Paynter's comeback celebrates life and the sheer tenacity of it."

"And so now Paynter returns, his comeback a testament to his determination and to the courage of every superlative racehorse who defines himself on the track by racing. But, even more perhaps, his comeback is a tribute to all those people who make such miracles happen, who dedicate their expertise and their time, who invest their emotions and their resources and, yes, their love, to the horses themselves and to the belief that such an arresting creature as Paynter, one of the fastest marvels in nature, indeed has a sacred right to race."

I don't think Zayat would do that. It seemed they took it slow with him as far workouts. Paynter appears to be back to normal. I would be disappointed if they rushed him but I don't think that's the case.

I started crying before he crossed the finish line and I'm still crying but they are tears of joy. It's been an emotional roller coaster with his devastating illness.

Pam, you heard right. It was difficult not to get emotional knowing Paynter's story.

A 114 Beyer for Paynter on Friday and a 115 for Fort Larned last night.

Some additional footage before, during and after Paynter's race from HRTV:

But this makes it even more sad that Hollywood will be closing.

This is a really nice story that appeared on the Home Page. Paynter will be retired to WinStar Farm after Breeder's Cup. Elliott Walden is the President and CEO of WinStar's racing operations. Years ago, Walden was a guest trainer at a Breakfast at Arlington and he gave me the impression he was a nice country boy, bordering on a country bumpkin. At that time, I could see him living in Mayberry. I am so glad to see he has become so successful. He really is a very nice person.

Good luck, Paynter, and always stay safe and healthy.

Last year, Paynter won the Vox Populi Award and is also nominated for this year's award. This award is not like an Eclipse for the best horse but is:

“Horse racing already has established avenues to award outstanding accomplishments, and we certainly should honor superior performance. But achievement can be measured in many ways, and fans occasionally feel a disconnect when the horses who most impacted the public are not recognized through the traditional equine awards. The industry is long overdue in annually acknowledging the star horse who brings the most excitement and attention to the sport.  It is my hope that the Secretariat “Vox Populi” Award will be an honor that reflects the heart and soul of racing and will help build upon the devotion the public has for a horse they love.”
 
~ Penny Chenery, 2010

Paynter's comeback this year and ending up in the Classic, in my opinion, is the exceptional story this year. If anyone cares to vote for Paynter or one of the other nominees, you can do it here:
