Paynter is already the sire of 23+ BTWs, including HOTY Knicks Go, who is out of a mare by Outflanker, a son of Danzig, and there are Awesome Again BTWs out of mares by Danzig sons Danehill, Dayjur, Langfuhr and Polish Numbers. From another branch of Northern Dancer, Paynter has a BTW out of a mare by Storm Cat. Outflanker is from the immediate family of A.P. Indy, and Paynter has sired GSWs out of mares by A.P. Indy sons Sauve and MingunA.P. Indy and sons and grandsons should be interesting here, especially Tapit. Out of Mr. Prospector line mares, he has BTWs out of mares by City Zip and his sire Carson City; Bandini, by Fusaichi Pegasus; and English Channel, by Smart Strike. There is a BTW from the sire line of Forty Niner, also the sire of Distorted Humor. From other branches of Mr. Prospector, there is a G1W on an Awesome Again cross over Gone West, making Speightstown, Elusive Quality, Mr. Greeley, and Grand Slam appealing choices. We can note Awesome Again line Classic winner Sir Winston out of a mare by Afleet Alex (by Northern Afleet). From the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector, Paynter has a BTW out of a mare by Quiet American and a BTW out of a mare by Unbridled’s Song. He has a GSW out of a mare by Dynaformer, a version of the successful Awesome Again cross with a Roberto line mare. Paynter has a BTW out of a mare by Holy Bull, another good cross under Awesome Again; a BTW out of a mare by Leroidesanimaux (sire of Animal Kingdom); a BTW out of a mare by Tiznow and a GSW out of a mare by his son Tiz Wonderful (both giving inbreeding to Tiznow and a sister). – Alan Porter
