Doctor Chit, a debut sixth behind subsequent GII With Anticipation S. hero State of Play (War Front) in a grassy Saratoga maiden last July, has been unbeatable at three. The bay romped by 8 1/2 lengths over the Keeneland Polytrack Apr. 14, then added a Woodbine allowance by three lengths last time May 12. Heavily favored to keep the streak alive in his dirt debut here, the bay was hustled after breaking a beat slow to set a pressured pace through fractions of :22.29 and :44.69. With Javier Castellano aboard, Doctor Chit had plenty left for the stretch despite briefly switching to his left lead, and went on to win for fun.
