What does 1D, 2D, 3D etc. mean?

I always see "2D barrel horse for sale" and stuff like that, but what does 2D mean? Or any of the numbers with a D at the end?
I still barrel race in the youth divisions so I don't know ;)

The times. 1D is divison 1, the best time
For example

And lets say there are the following times:
16.4, 16.9, 17.6, 18.7, 19.8, 20.2

1D times (winning time of 16.5-17.5):
1st) 16.4
2nd) 16.9

2D times(17.5-18.5):
1st) 17.6

3D times (18.5-19.5):
1st) 18.7

4Dtimes (19.5+):
1st) 19.8
2nd) 20.2

PLS explain the 1-D 2-D 3-D 4-D

1D = fastest time of the day
2D = fastest horse that is equal to or slower than the agreed-upon split (typically 1/2 second from the 1D time)
3D = fastest horse that is equal to or slower than the agreed-upon split (typically 1 second from the 1D time)
4D = fastest horse that is equal to or slower than the agreed-upon split (typically 2 seconds from the 1D time)
