Thistledown: Hackendiffy wires field


Hackendiffy made the lead a few strides out of the gate, set the pace, and widened to a 12 1/2-length win over eight 2-year-old, Ohio Bred-rivals in the $75,000, 1 1/16-mile Juvenile Stakes.

Forest Picnic chased the winner all the way and finished second, 2 1/2 lengths clear of Clever Jimmy C in third. Hackeniffy was timed in 1:45.80 over a fast track and returned a $2.80.
