HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Dazzling Gem was traveling back to his Oaklawn base Monday after putting his connections in a “fun” position Saturday by running third in the 1 1/8-mile Louisiana Derby at Fair Grounds. The horse has a host of options for his next start, trainer Brad Cox said, including the Kentucky Derby after picking up 20 eligibility points for the May 7 classic at Churchill Downs.
