Elaborate race-rigging scam uncovered in HK

As the sporting world reels from suggestions that an international cricket coach might have been murdered by a betting syndicate, word comes from Hong Kong of more possible gambling-related murkiness.

Staff at Happy Valley racecourse have discovered an elaborate device planted in the turf on the racecourse that was apparently meant to fire tranquilizer darts into horses at the start of races. Quite bizarre.

Yahoo News report.
