For some reason I thought there was a rule (or unwritten rule) re gelding before age three? Am I correct in saying that?

No, you may geld a horse at any time

You may breed a 2yo and geld it immediately, thereby avoiding the compulsory farm time which is enforced once it has raced

Good to know.

Is it done often? When would one look to do it right away?

Hi Kirk

As with most things sim, the answer to your question will vary with differing opinions. Some would say you should always race the horse first. Why reduce your later options (re breeding) before even trying out the horse

I geld a lot of horses when I breed them. Primarily because I wouldn't spend the extra 200 credits on the next generation, even if they won a G1. The bloodline isn't worth the expense. That's just my opinion and my strategy.

What I would advise is don't geld early if you've worked hard to afford the targeted bloodlines

Hope this helps

John

IRL.. I never sent a horse to the farm to geld... always right after a race.. two days to make sure they have recovered from the race and then the ultimate equipment change.. then walked for a day, shedrow the next with tack and rider... back to the track day 3 for a jog.. ive run and won many times within 3 weeks.. you spend 100-150 days of training to get a fit racehorse, no owner is throwing that fitness away just to neuter the horse...farm rest isnt needed or wanted... most of the time a horse will sulk because of it if not kept in training. their maybe be exceptions, like if their are complications but that is 1 in a 100.. maybe 1 in a 1000.. so why farm time in the sim?

Send horse to farm. Click on the barn symbol. Scroll down to bottom. Enter code (GELD followed by 4 numbers). Click enter. Voila!

And here comes the counter to what Irish said. I always farm to geld. The reasoning is two fold. One, the horse shows a bit of promise but I want to see if I can get better. Second, underperforming young horses (2 and 3 year olds) I want to keep the amount of races down because most won't really start banging on the racetrack until they are 4 years old. I don't want them over raced so I can take advantage of what should be their best year of racing.
