Congratulations,
Math Wizard
Winner of the 2019 $1 Million Pennsylvania Derby

Math Wizard Springs Monster Upset In
Grade 1 Pennsylvania Derby

BENSALEM, PA. — Math Wizard, the second longest shot on the board in Saturday's $1 million Pennsylvania Derby, pulled off a gigantic upset when he won the Grade 1 stakes by a neck at Parx Racing. Ridden by Irad Ortiz Jr. and trained by 32-year-old South Florida-based Saffie Joseph Jr., Math Wizard rallied down the center of the track and shocked the field that included Preakness Stakes winner War of Will, the beaten favorite in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness in Improbable and a colt that came in with four straight wins in Mr. Money. Math Wizard went off at odds of 31-1 and paid $64.20, $12 and $4.80. He did not become the biggest longshot to win the Pennsylvania Derby in its 40-year history. Read More →
