The Chaser Projected Alan Jones' Phone Number Onto The Opera House

"The results of the barrier draw have been held in confidence by Racing NSW Stewards to ensure they are not publicly known until this evening".

Hundreds of torchlights shone on the Sydney Opera House as protesters attempted to disrupt the controversial promotion of a multi-million dollar horse race on the icon's sails.

Protesters have come out in droves in an attempt to foil a campaign to project the The Everest race's barrier draw onto the Sydney Opera House.

Controversy continues to plague The Everest horse race, with Racing NSW now suspending all bets on the event - billed as the "world's richest race on turf" - until this evening citing "security risks".

Political manipulator Jones, whose superpower is to be able to wrap gutless Liberal Party politicians around his little orifice, is behind the verbal bullying of Opera House CEO Louise Herron.

"Racing NSW has made the decision to conduct the draw prior to the event to circumvent any security risks that may exist".

Overnight the comedy group shared footage of some members driving around Sydney in a vehicle with a projector attached, projecting the words "Advertise Here: Call Alan" onto the NSW Art Gallery, Parliament House and the Opera House.

Sleeping Giants Oz issued a statement to AdNews, saying: "Sleeping Giants Oz fully supports the action against allowing the Everest Event to go ahead at the Opera House and applaud everyone who supported the petition".

Jones and Premier Gladys Berejiklian have faced an increasingly vocal backlash after she intervened within hours of the interview to allow the horse race to be promoted on the Opera House.

The NSW Heritage Council said it was extremely disappointed with the government's decision which would turn the "international architectural masterpiece" into a billboard.

"So to Louise and those people who've been offended, I apologise".

"The Opera House management has approved exemptions under the Heritage Act to make these types of decisions", the spokesman said.
