Hello Emma,
if your yearlings are doing one workout a week, that is enough. They need about 7 days to recover and be ready for the next workout. If you are doing more and additional training you are starting to get close to what they may muster without getting hurt. If you are using workouts to learn their favoured equipment you also need to standardize the amount and type of training they are getting, or you won't be able to compare their workout times.
Best of luck!

Y58-W10-D6 Vet: Looks like xxx is currently well. This horse is at its peak, it would seem, energy wise, so go ahead and race it
Y58-W10-D6 Vet: xxxs legs look fine for now. This horse should be fine tomorrow, check back with me then if you'd like.
Y58-W10-D5 Vet: X-rays are coming back clear on xxx! This horse should be fine tomorrow, check back with me then if you'd like.

same horse. the first 10/6 was done within 5 minutes of the day change.. the last done about 7 hours after, what gives?

I believe the SIM updates every 30 minutes or something like that, so it could just be that the 7 hours after was exactly however many days (let's say 3) since it was shipped or worked or whatever. I hope that makes sense? I could also be wrong though.

As in real life, the vet cannot predict exactly how many hours/minutes it will be until your horse is 100% healed. When the vet predicts that it "should be fine tomorrow", it means that within the next 24 hours, the last hints of the injury should disappear. For injuries, the changing of the day is not necessarily when an injury will be healed.
