Thistledown: Hackendiffy sharp


Hackendiffy broke sharply under jockey Mike Rowland, sprinted to a clear lead, and then was never headed while winning the $50,000 Summit Silver Cup by 9 3/4 lengths. Forest Picnic overcame an awkward start to rally through the stretch to finish second, 1 1/4 lengths in front of Clever Jimmy C. A field of seven Ohio-bred 3-year-olds started.

Hackendiffy ($4.60) was timed in 1:46.22 for the 1 1/16 miles. Owner David Eigel said, "I would like to run him in he Ohio Derby, we'll have to wait and see, it could be in the plans."
