### Sage symlink not working

I've tried to create a symlink for sage to use in my OS X terminal, using the command

sudo ln -s /Applications/SageMath-7.3.app/sage/sage /usr/local/bin/sage

I got an alias file in my bin-folder, but when I try to open it all I get is this message

"The operation can’t be completed because the original item for “sage” can’t be found."

When I type in just the path /Applications/SageMath-7.3.app/sage/sage in the terminal, sage opens just fine.

Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong? I'm not very accustomed to working in the terminal.
