NEW YORK (AP) - Bustin It romped to a seven-length victory in the $125,000 Rockville Center Stakes, the closing day feature on Sunday at Belmont Park.

The colt trained by Michael Mareina set a comfortable pace in the race for New York-bred 2-year-olds, easily holding even-money favorite International Star at bay. Rajiv Maragh was aboard for the six furlongs in 1:11.69 on the fast track.

Bustin It, who has a win and a second in two starts, paid $4.10, $2.30 and $2.10. International Star returned $2.20 and $2.10 while Midnight Nick paid $2.80 to show.

New York racing shifts to Saratoga on Friday.
