Question about reading the DRF

Afternoon!

Ok.... I've found several online tutorials about reading the DRF.... but they all refer to a running line that is different than what the DRF's I have show....

I've been told/taught that the running line is always:

Post Position; Start Position right after the gate opens (assuming sprint); 1st call, 2nd call, 3rd call, stretch, Finish.

The attached example from Golden Gate, 11-11-19 has every horse in every race starting out with 4/5..... instead of a single # Post Position.... what am I looking at? It's driving me crazy.

Here's also the DRF link that shows what I THINK is a standard racing line example. https://www1.drf.com/flash/drf_pp_tutorial.html

Thanks for helping me out.

first number 4 is the horses post the second number 5 is number of horses. so 4/5 is post 4 in 5 horse race.

The example only showed Meet Miss Kitty.
She had 4th post position in 5 horse fields (4/5) those last two races according to the Equibase charts.
