Betting suspended on The Everest until barrier draw revealed

The Chaser project new ad onto Opera House as Jones apologises for Louise Herron interview

The controversy overshadowing Saturday's lucrative The Everest race meeting took another twist with betting on the feature race suspended until the barrier draw was released to the public due to risks of a security breach.

Hundreds of protestors gathered at Sydney Opera House last night in an attempt to thwart efforts to project a controversial advert onto the heritage-listed building.

They were unhappy with the use of the much-loved Opera House as a billboard for gambling, and the government being lobbied by the racing industry and sections of the media into ensuring the promotion would be displayed.

Barkan industrial park is next to the settlement of Barkan and was established in the early 1980s. According to local media, a third woman, 54, was injured and transferred to a hospital.

Broadcaster Alan Jones was accused of bullying in an on-air interview with Opera House chief executive Louise Herron, an accusation he initially refuted before publicly apologising. Jones' response to Herron arguing the Opera House is "not a billboard" was: "Who said?"

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has refused to rule out using the Sydney Opera House to promote other events after a huge backlash against the plan to project details of a horse race on the iconic building.

"I used some words in these programs about the Everest, and the Opera House, and Louise, which in hindsight I now most regret hearing, having heard the impact they've clearly had on some people", said Jones.

Some 240,000 people have now signed a Change.org petition calling for the promotion to be stopped. In the early hours of this morning, up went their ad on the Sydney Opera House sails stating 'Advertise Here - Call Alan (and his mobile number).

In a letter to the premier on Tuesday, the NSW Heritage Council said it was extremely disappointed with the government's decision and described the projection as "inappropriate".

The Facebook post also had images of the Sydney Opera house superimposed with text and images touting Melbourne's superiority over the harbour city.

As for the collision with Max, I was obviously pushing to pass, I knew he had a penalty, but I also felt that we were fast . The top drivers remained largely the same for the rest of the race, with Hamilton extending his lead followed by Bottas.

Mr Quint said the government still hadn't explained how projecting advertising onto the sails adhered to the exemptions.
