Paynter- Starting A New Victory
Video Provided By: RuffianZenyatta15
This horse has to be the bravest horse I have ever seen. He is such a fighter. Paynter was diagnosed with severe colitis after winning the Haskell by 4 lengths. 95%-100% of horses with colitis dont make it. A few weeks later he was diagnosed with laminitis, the same disease that took the lives of Barbaro, Secretariat and many others. Most horses would not have survived, but Paynter managed to beat both. He also just went thru surgery to remove a 15-inch external growth from his intestines. Now he is fully recovered and completely sound. He has put on weight and will return to racing next year.
