I would say if color is your only motivation for keeping him intact, I would geld him. Like another poster mentioned, he's not likely to throw color more then the typical QH markings unless you start breeding him with paints which I don't recommend because then you're just intentionally causing registration issues. As a baby, it's hard to tell if his conformation is correct enough to reproduce and it's recommended that he prove himself in a discipline and through good health before deeming his traits worthy to pass on. You're looking at a couple years of training and showing before that time comes.
Ever heard the saying "You don't ride the color?", to the informed buyer conformation, temperament and athletic ability are much more important then the chrome a horse has.
This guy would make a very pretty and I'm sure happy gelding.
