I would soak a rag with mineral spirits and wipe it down with that. It should mostly dissolve the stain and you could spread it out again, wiping with the grain to wipe down the entire top. I would wipe over it once to soften up the stain, then a second time using the same rag with the now mineral spirits/stain mix to even every thing out (hopefully). It may come out lighter than you want so you may have to give it another coat after it dries. Next coat, do not leave it sit and dry at all. Wipe it on, and wipe it off immediately, really rubbing it down. If the mineral spirits don’t do the trick, lacquer thinner will for sure, but will completely strip it.
