The terminology of this may get confusing ;-)

 From the Aug 26, 1964 Harness Horse and the races at Springfield, Illinois, the following brief explanation in the summary (I'm assuming it was Illinois Breds or some lesser than main-even since Bret Hanover went in another race):

Dave and Kay Ward's Lan Dow won the 2?year?old pace with a 2:042/5 effort in a heat of his division and a clinching mile in 2:05 in the final. The bay gelding is by Empire Hanover and out of the Ward's fine matron, An Ka Da p, 2:014/5, t, 3, 2:053/5, a winner of the 3?year?old trot in this series herself in 1956.
 end of quote

 Not much of an explanation.
The un-charted results show two divisions, in which each horse was required to race two-heats.
 In addition, either the division winners or more horses were required to go a 3rd-raceoff.

 Five dashes in all for the two 2YO divisions.
 Same for the 3YO Divisions.

 In the results the race is titled, "Illinois State Fair Colt Stakes"
The horses names and drivers at more than 20, are too numerous to list.
1st; Lan Dow, 2d; Reward Yates, 3d; Chief Parker

 Anybody have a clue of the race name and dash conditions/explanation?
 Was it 3 of 5?
