    Oaklawn: Oxbow staying home for Rebel
    By Mary Rampellini Daily Racing Form 03/05/2013 9:17AM
    HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Oxbow is to make his next start in the Grade 2, $600,000 Rebel at Oaklawn Park on March 16 and will be ridden by Mike Smith, trainer D. Wayne Lukas said on Tuesday.
    Oxbow had been under consideration for the Louisiana Derby after winning the Grade 3 Lecomte at Fair Grounds in January and returning to New Orleans last month and finishing a close fourth in the Grade 2 Risen Star.
    “He’s going in the Rebel,” Lukas said Tuesday. “There’s a couple of reasons. He’s training well here at home in Arkansas. And I’ve shipped him twice already, and I think rather than ship him three times, I’m going keep him here and try him here.”

    By Mary Rampellini Daily Racing Form 03/05/2013 3:50PM
    HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Jockey Mike Smith will be active in both stakes at Oaklawn Park on Saturday, when he rides Flashy Gray in the Grade 3, $150,000 Honeybee for trainer Bill Mott and and Brethren in the Grade 3, $150,000 Razorback Handicap for trainer Steve Asmussen.
    When last seen at Oaklawn, Smith was winning the Arkansas Derby for the second time in his career, aboard Bodemeister in April 2012. His first win in the race came in 2008 on Gayego. Smith’s other major wins at Oaklawn include six runnings of the Apple Blossom, a race he took twice with Zenyatta and three times with Azeri. Smith also won the Honeybee in 2011 with Joyful Victory.

    Lady of Shamrock Takes Santa Ana Spotlight
    By Jack Shinar The Blood-Horse Updated: Friday, March 22, 2013 9:56 AM
    Lady of Shamrock, a two-time grade I winner on turf last season, commences her 4-year-old campaign in the $150,000 Santa Ana Stakes (gr. IIT) March 24 on the turf at Santa Anita Park.
    Hronis Racing's daughter of Scat Daddy will face five opponents in her first start for trainer John Sadler since she ran a troubled fifth in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (gr. IT) over the same Santa Anita course Nov. 2.
    Regular rider Mike Smith will be aboard the late-running Lady of Shamrock. She drew the rail in the Santa Ana, a 1 1/8-mile test of older fillies and mares at nine furlongs. The race is the seventh on the Sunday card with a scheduled post time of 3:36 p.m. PDT

    He is in training at Payson Park, IIRC. I've posted some of his workouts on the Clocker's Corner thread. They are recent, and I might have missed posting his last one. I hope we will see him on the track before too long.
