Delaware: School House springs $37.60 surprise in With Anticipation Stakes


School House, the second longest shot on the board at 17-1, rallied in deep stretch to get up by a neck in Thursday’s $50,250 With Anticipation Stakes at Delaware Park.

Ridden for the first time by Kendrick Carmouche, who came in from Philadelphia for the mount, the 6-year-old School House ($37.60) made up 2 1/2 lengths in the final furlong to prevail among five horses who were bunched at the finish of the 1 1/16-mile turf race.

Hobbs, the early pacesetter, held second by a neck over Gourmet Dinner, who was in turn a neck ahead of Admiral Perry.  Sleepless Knight missed fourth by a nose.

In winning for the sixth time in 26 lifetime starts, School House covered the distance over a firm course in 1:42.54. He is trained by Kelly Lynn Deiter for Patricia Salomone, Gordon Policastro, and George Reeb.
