Two jobless teenagers yesterday admitted trying to torch the car of horse trainer Patrick Biancone, with one having been paid $3,000. Yang Ka-kit, 17, and Lui Kwok-po, 18, pleaded guilty in the District Court to attempting arson in the car park of Racecourse Gardens, the Jockey Club's headquarters in Sha Tin. Prosecutor Paul Leung said that on March 28 this year, Yang threw a stone at the rear windscreen of the car, while Lui threw a beer bottle after lighting a strip of cloth stuffed inside it. The pair then fled. The flames went out before the bottle reached the car, but its seats were splashed with kerosene, Mr Leung said. Yang was arrested after telling an undercover officer he had committed the offence. Under caution, he said he had been paid $3,000. Lui was arrested in an assault case and is now serving a training centre term. Judge Wong Hing-chun adjourned sentencing.
