Sharon and Chris Lang along with Yield Boko will feature in a documentary which has been filmed by a French TV crew.
Stunning Swedish import Yield Boko was one of the Chris Lang Sr-trained trotters to perform before a French TV crew at the Lang property this week.
The crew spent Tuesday morning at Chris and Sharon Lang’s Murchison property as part of a world-wide tour sourcing stories for a TV series of documentaries on horse racing from across the world.
Lang Sr said while the focus of the documentaries was on the global thoroughbred industry, Harness Racing Australia’s Adrian Kelly had arranged for the crew to attend his property and to link it with a promotion for the second running of the Great Southern Star trotters series in April.
‘‘Adrian has done a great job to get them to feature trotting in Australia as well as thoroughbreds,’’ Lang said.
‘‘They will be featuring the segment on TV in France in the lead up to our Great Southern Star, which will be great publicity for the race and as well as the trotter.’’
Lang worked with Swedish import Yield Boko, who has already received an invitation to compete in the Great Southern Star, and his rising star Kyvalley Blur for the TV crew.
Yield Boko, one of the best credentialed European trotters to be available to Australian breeders, is currently mixing stud duties with light training.
Lang Sr is happy about Yield Boko’s progress and, all going well, hopes to have the trotter racing in January, when the build up to the Great Southern Star begins in earnest.
‘‘He’s serving a lot of mares at present, but that’s the plan at the moment,’’ Lang said.
