"The first Pointer to win the National Championship was "Manitoba Rap", whose bloodlines combined those of "Rip Rap", "Jingo", and "Rush of Lad". He was retired from competition immediately after winning the championship in 1909, when he was still less than three years of age." -- The Sportsman's Bookshelf, Volume XIII, Hunting Dogs and Their Uses: The Stackpole Company, Harrisburg, PA, 1951


"After a number of years of retirement Mr. Dickey started him ("Alford's John") in the National Championship at Grand Juction, Tenn., in 1909. At this time he was in his ninth year and he surprised the field trial contingent with the race that he put up, for he was game to the core and ran strong to the finish. ... His brace-mate was the young dog, "Manitoba Rap", then less than three years of age. ... The oldest and the youngest in the stake were down together to compete for the greatest honor the field trial world has to bestow. "Manitoba Rap" won it, but "Alford's John" ran a heat that was the talk of the followers." -- Karen Blasche, "Proud Heritage", Pointer Points vol.1-90


""Manitoba Rap", Pointer, Male, Sire: "Ripple", Dam: "Lady Cyrano Rush", Winner National Championship, 1908-1909, All-Age Stake, Owner: Thomas Johnson, Handler: C.H. Babcock." -- Fielddog.com Website, 2002, Field Trial Winners Database


"Now as to the breeding of "Champion Manitoba Rap". ... he is a combination of "Rip Rap", "Jingo", and "Rush of Lad"; but there is still another infusion of blood, that of "Duke of Hessen", which was invariably a successful nick with "Jingo". "Rap's" sire, "Ripple", was by "Young Rip Rap", out of "Gorham's Dorothy", the dam of "Green River Kate", by "Lad of Rush". "Young Rip Rap", was by old "Champion Rip Rap", out of "Pearl's Dot". "Gorham's Dorothy" was by "Jingo", out of "Queen of Hessen", which was by "King of Kent", out of "Kate Rudy". It is through the latter that the "Duke of Hessen" blood was introduced, for she was by that well-known bench show champion, out of "Lucille Kirk".

""Lady Cyrano Rush" was by "King Cyrano", out of "Elma B. Rush", both well-known field trial winners. The former was by "Jingo", out of "Kate Kent" ("King of Kent" x "Bang's Mollie"); the latter by "Lad of Rush" ("Rush of Lad" x "Topsy L"), out of "Pearl S. Kent" ("King of Kent" x "Kit Curry"). It is a well-balanced combination of pointer blood, and even though "Manitoba Rap's" parents were not great as individuals, there was sufficient quality behind them to stand as warranty for their son's greatness." -- Hochwalt, 1923
