Mystery peach tree

Peach tree

No, that isn't the varietal name. It's another tree that I dug up from my old yard and brought with me. I know its a dwarf, self-fertile, and peach leaf curl resistant. I've had a few peaches so far and they are good.

I'm concerned about the way that it is growing though. It is forming a Y shape rather than having a central leader. It's quite top heavy and we needed to add a t-post to hold it up. It almost looks like I could prune off the branch on the right, creating more of a central leader. Or should I just prune a bunch of the branches from both?

See what else is growing in my garden.
