NEW YORK (AP) - Doctor Chit, the 3-5 favorite, led all the way Thursday, beating Sportswriter by 3 1/4 lengths in the $85,000 Western Larla Stakes for 3-year-olds at Belmont Park.

After losing his debut at Saratoga last year, Doctor Chit has reeled off three straight wins for trainer Todd Pletcher. Javier Castellano was aboard as the colt ran six furlongs in 1:08.90.

Doctor Chit paid $3.50, $2.50 and $2.10. Sportswriter returned $3.60 and $2.50, and Saint of Saints paid $2.60 to show.
