The Ron Rippey Award for Handicapping Media

The Ron Rippey Media Award

The Rippey Awards

Ron Rippey won the 2006 National Handicapping Championship in addition to qualifying with wins in 10 other prestigious challenges. With his contributions towards the BRISnet.com Spotlight Selections, Newark Star-Ledger and his regular visit to the handicapping circuit, Ron became a friend to many regular faces along his handicapping trek.

Ed DeRosa, Director of Marketing for BRIS, celebrated Ron’s infectious enthusiasm for playing the racing game “Ron would want to beat you, but also ensure you were having fun too.”

The award is traditionally presented at the National Turf Writers And Broadcasters (NTWAB) dinner each year to honor the best article, blog post or multimedia presentation of handicapping topics published online, or in print, over the course of a year. An additional goal of the Rippey Awards is to further the production of quality content on money management, use of proprietary data, (in)famous handicappers, general essays and more. The Rippey Award sweetens the deal by offering a $1,000 cash prize to the winner.

Each year there is an open window for submissions to be entered for consideration. Watch for the date to be released around the beginning of fall annually and submit your published work (and/or a link) to RippeyAward[at]Brisnet.com.

The 2018 Ron Rippey Award nomination period is now open and closes Tuesday, Oct. 2. Submissions should have a creation date between Sep. 1, 2017 and Sep 23, 2018.
