Five heats for $1,400?

 from the Oct 28, 1964 Harness Horse.
Afton Nick and owner-trainer-driver John Gregory were not reported as the winner of a condition pace at York, Pa. The race had the distinction of having 40 horses going postward for a $1,400 purse. Gregory and his 3-year-old Lightning Hal colt did emerge the winner by capturing the last heat of the five heat affair in 2:12. This was the East Norwich, N.Y., resident's third drive of his young career.

Any explanation as how the races were divided up and how they determined the race winner?

I am just an old "Hoss" trainer, that has been raced hard and put away wet. 
As my Friend from Maine(Ora Stratton) says "There are horse trainers, and then there are real "Hoss" trainers.

looking,
            There was not even a date provided in this issue.
The photo and text was stuck in one of the back pages of the issue as a space filler.
 I've no other references to "york" or the horse in the 1964 issues I've completed thus far (not all the 1964 HH issues are in what I'm working with.)

 Best chance of locating any information would be locate the horse in a 1964 USTA Yearbook.
