When is a filly considered a mare?

I'm curious, when is a young filly or colt considered as a mare or gelding / stallion? I am finding conflicting information when I search it online. I've seen anywhere from 3yrs old to 7 yrs old. Thank you!

I've been told 4 years old with racehorses, I'd assume it holds true for all breeds.

I've heard that too about race horses. That they age another year on January 1st no matter when they were born. Doesn't matter much with my girl though because she was born on January 16th
