English term or phrase:blade of the 'turf'
This is from a D.H.Lawrence's "The Rocking-Horse Winner". What I am not quite sure about is the meaning of "blade" in this context. The whole sentence reads "[He] was a perfect blade of the 'turf'." The meaning of "turf" is a race course, but I have difficulties in connecting the "blade" to it.
