Santa Anita: Paynter doing well after breeze
Paynter, the winner of the Haskell Invitational last August who survived a bout with laminitis last summer and fall, emerged from his first workout of the year Tuesday in good condition, trainer Bob Baffert said Wednesday. Paynter worked three furlongs in 36 seconds.
“He’s a pretty fit horse,” Baffert said. “He gets so much out of his galloping. I could have worked him three-quarters.”
Owned by Zayat Stables, Paynter was shipped to Baffert’s stable in late December and has been in training since the start of the year. A winner of 3 of 6 starts and $952,224, Paynter was second to Union Rags in the Belmont Stakes last June.
Baffert has not selected a race for Paynter’s comeback.
Hi! Paynter looks marvelous. So happy to see that he is back in the swing of things. He resembles Barbaro with his color and white spot on his face. I am eager to watch his first race back. God love you, Paynter.
Can't wait for your comeback! I just hope that you stay well after all you've been through! Good Luck Paynter! You deserve it!
Beware if he drops him in a $12,500 claiming race 'just to get his confidence back'.
Now here's a horse whose story is already great. Hope he does well in his comeback. May give us all something to cheer about and get the general public behind this wonderful gutsy horse. Angels have touched him already, so let's hope he stays well first, and that he races to his former form.
He must have a good foundation after "resting" at Fairhill. Bob you're too much...stir the $&*# a little more..work him 3/4. Glad he's well. When ya work him 3/4 though..put Doc Cheney on him. "OL COUNTRY" or Dr. Fraley!
