when a horse needs rest, is it better to send to farm or set the train for race date back 6-8 weeks?

Based on some conversations I've had with other Simsters - there are opinions for and against both of those options. I personally have gone back and forth between farming and training to a future date and honestly have seen more short term success with training. However, it's worth noting that my sample size isn't exactly massive... and there is a long-term aspect to consider as it relates to wear and tear. My 10 cent guess is training is better short term while rest on the pasture is better for the long term.

The farm doesn't give any sort of benefit to the horse.  It's simply a way of freeing up a slot in your stable if your horse isn't going to race for a while.  So if you're not planning on racing the horse for 9 weeks (6 weeks farm + 3 weeks training on return), then use the farm.  Otherwise, keep in your stable.
