Actually, I would recommend getting a Ph.D. in Mathematics. Why? Mathematical physics deals with solely math. Period. You only have to explore math portions. If you get a Ph.D. in Mathematics, you will have SO many other options as well.

However, if you had to decide between the two, high-energy physics would probably be better. Why? It involves more math than science. Astrophysics has mostly math, but A LOT of science. High-energy physics is all math and would therefore be the better choice.
