"Rip Rap" was one of the first white and black Pointers to make
a big mark in the field trial world. For many years prior to his
appearance, black in a Pointer was frowned upon with suspicion, but it
was not long before this prejudice was dispelled. So prominently did his name
become associated with the white and blacks that to this day many of those
not so well informed as they consider themselves refer to every white and
black Pointer as a "Rip Rap". Rip Rap sired 19 field trial winners,
many of them fine producers. His best son was "Young Rip Rap", a
brilliant performer and a successful sire."
