It's English slang, meaning to win by a small amount, and usually just beating someone out at the finish.

Add in that historically apples were a major fruit in England and hte seeds are called 'pips' I'd guess originally it was winning by winning by the width or length of an apple pip. About 1/4 of an inch.

Sort of like the Amreican winning by a hair, which also means close, and not always literally quite as close as the width of a hair.

Never having won, I am not familiar with this concept of pipping.
