Math Wizard ‘A Long Shot’ For Pegasus; Saudi Cup The Main Goal

Math Wizard, an invitee to the $3 million Pegasus World Cup (G1) at Gulfstream Park Jan. 25, returned to the worktab Sunday morning.

The 4-year-old son of Algorithms, who missed a workout last weekend due to a slight fever, breezed a half-mile in 48.21 seconds under assistant trainer Sabine Langvad. The move, accomplished in company with stablemate Perfect Revenge, was the ninth quickest of 89 recorded at the distance.

“He did it the right way. It wasn’t supposed to be serious today. Next week we’ll pick it up,” said trainer Saffie Joseph Jr., who celebrated his 33rd birthday on the morning after saddling three stakes winners on Gulfstream Park’s Sophomore Showcard, including $100,000 Mucho Macho Man victor Chance It.

The main objective for the 2019 Pennsylvania Derby (G1) winner is the Saudi Cup Feb. 29.

“Pegasus is in play, but it’s unlikely,” Joseph said. “He still has time. Obviously, he missed a week, which set us back, but it’s still a long shot.”

Joseph-trained Tonalist‘s Shape, undefeated in three starts, breezed an ‘easy’ half-mile in 49.66 in preparation for a planned start in the Forward Gal (G3) Feb. 2.
