“Offerings From a Rust Belt Jockey,” by Andrew Plattner and published by Dzanc Books of Ann Arbor, Mich., was named the winner of the $10,000 Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award at a Wednesday reception at Shane Ryan’s Castleton Lyons farm near Lexington.

The fictional story about the travails of a frustrated third-tier jockey became the second novel to take the award, following Jaimy Gordon’s “Lord of Misrule” in 2010. The award was conceived in 2006 by the late Dr. Tony Ryan and has since been presented annually by the Ryan family.
