A thoroughbred from the middle, both ways

Posted by Mike Duchek on March 09, 2007

I am a research assistant trying to find out the meaning of this phrase. Can anyone help?

"a thoroughbred from the middle, both ways." Apparently meant as a compliment, but may have been related to horse racing. 1930s?
