If you believe that applying next year will make you a stronger candidate (which it most likely will), then I would wait. Being 29 does not in any way negatively impact you. You will not be considered old. Stanford's acceptance rate is very low. I would do everything you can between now and next year in order to increase your odds of success, and not worry about age at all.
I hope this helps!!!
