The recent discovery of a device found hidden at a Hong Kong horseracing track has led to a police hunt and a $100,000 reward.

The device appeared to be designed to shoot darts into the bellies of horses as they came out of the starting gate.

Police are looking for four men who are believed to have been in the area where the device was found; the Jockey Club has offered a reward for information leading to a prosecution.

Robert Siegel talks with Keith Bradsher, the Hong Kong bureau chief for The New York Times.
