Peters has turned to Smith while his No.1 hoop, Pike, is in Hong Kong and the Bunbury jockey will be full of confidence after winning the WATC Derby on Rohan last Saturday week.
It is not the first time that Smith has ridden for Peters. He rode Crown Prosecutor to two victories in 2003 before it went on to win the Perth Cup two years later with Pike on board.
Smith is relishing the opportunity to link up with Peters again and is still on a high following his Derby win.
"I'll take whatever I can get and it's a nice pick-up," Smith revealed. "Some lucky breaks can come your way and that's what's so good about the game.
"I would have said you're dreaming if you had told me I'd come back and win the Derby so soon. It has been a bit of a surprise."
Smith will now be hoping for more success on Battle Emblem, who won the Grandstand Cup (1400m) last start, when he held off the late finish of Dempsey to win by a long neck on 14th April.
Pike is due to be away for three weeks and Peters has confirmed that Smith will not be the only jockey he uses during that time.
"We're not committed to anyone in particular," Peters said. "He's got commitments to people he's attached to."
The evergreen nine-year old, who has won 10 of 54 starts for $555,925 in prize money, will carry the 59.5kg topweight in the York Stakes.
