ARCADIA, Calif. &ndash; Preparation has not gone entirely to plan for Evening Jewel or Unzip Me, the favorites Sunday in the Grade 3 Monrovia Stakes at Santa Anita.\r\nFirst it was wet, then cold, and another storm could move the race from turf to dirt. Eight fillies and mares entered the 6 1/2-furlong race; Evening Jewel and Unzip Me have not raced since third-place finishes Nov. 5-6 in the Breeders&rsquo; Cup.\r\nEvening Jewel, third in the Filly and Mare Sprint, breezed a sharp three furlongs Thursday in 35.40 seconds, &ldquo;just to get a little pump in her,&rdquo; trainer Jim Cassidy said.\r\nIt worked, but Evening Jewel was feeling so good afterward she reared while walking off the track. She dumped her exercise rider, flipped, and fell to the ground. It was a scary scene for the two-time Grade 1 winner.\r\nFortunately she quickly scrambled to her feet, no worse.\r\n&ldquo;She scratched her hock, but it was just superficial,&rdquo; Cassidy said.\r\nWith six wins and more than $1 million in earnings, Evening Jewel and jockey Victor Espinoza will be favored to win the Monrovia on either surface.\r\nRacing officials scheduled the Monrovia as race 2, hoping to run on grass before the storm arrives. Cassidy said Evening Jewel was likely to run on either surface.\r\n&ldquo;I might have to,&rdquo; he said.\r\nEvening Jewel is using the Monrovia as a prep race for the $300,000 Sunshine Millions Distaff on Jan. 29.\r\nUnzip Me, third in the BC Turf Sprint, will not run if the Monrovia is taken off grass, trainer Marty Jones said.\r\n&ldquo;Maybe at some point we&rsquo;ll try her on the main track . . . not now,&rdquo; he said.\r\nWith a 3-for-4 record on the hill and 9-for-16 overall record, Unzip Me &ldquo;missed a lot of time with the bad weather, but so has everybody,&rdquo; Jones said. &ldquo;She is training really well, but probably not coming up to the race as designed.&rdquo;\r\nRafael Bejarano and Unzip Me could make an easy lead in the Monrovia. If she is scratched, 12-for-26 Reba Is Tops could be the reluctant pacesetter.\r\nAt age 7, Reba Is Tops will be retired this winter. Trainer Mark Glatt said she is most effective chasing a target but realizes the race gets easier if it is run on dirt. Reba Is Tops will run on dirt.\r\nOther Monrovia entrants include Broken Dreams, La Nez, Lilly Fa Pootz, Candace Gold, and Gilded Gem.
