, a $42,000 KEESEP yearling turned $375,000 OBSMAR 2-year-old, was sixth behind State of Play (War Front) in his grassy unveiling at the Spa last July, but resurfaced over the Keeneland Poly Apr. 14 to romp home by 8 1/2 lengths with a 97 Beyer. Made the prohibitive 2-5 chalk in this somewhat surprising ship north of the border, Doctor Chit took early pressure through splits of :22.83 and :44.87, but kept on kicking in the lane to get it done by three lengths. Shakespeare's Brew (Shakespeare), who hadn't been seen since a solid debut on the turf here last August, got up for second. Lifetime Record: 3-2-0-0, $66,139.
