Opera House advertising: The Everest horse racing controversy, betting suspended

Betting has been suspended on The Everest until barriers for the 12 runners are revealed on Tuesday night.

Earlier in the day, Racing NSW also brought forward the barrier draw "to circumvent any security risks that may exist".

This afternoon the Heritage Council of New South Wales delivered a damning letter directly to the Premier expressing its "extreme disappointment" with her decision to allow the advertising to go ahead.

"I don't believe my words or actions qualify as those of a bully or a misogynist but there are clearly many people who do", Jones said on 2GB.
