Racing NSW officials have named six potential emergencies for slot-holders for The Everest this Saturday, while they have also suspended betting on Tuesday afternoon after the barrier draw was conducted. The Sydney Opera House initially rejected the proposal but a state official overruled and allowed a revised 10-minute projection of the ad for October 9.
The activist group has criticised Jones for attacking Herron, calling her a "tyrant" and questioning her credentials after she said she wouldn't allow the Opera House to carry advertising for The Everest Cup horse race on its sails.
A firestorm of criticism erupted after the government of the state of NSW overruled the management of the World Heritage listed building to allow the advertisements for the A$13-million Everest Cup. It falls in the middle of Melbourne's marquee Spring Racing Carnival, a strategic move by Racing NSW who have ambitions to drag money and attention out of Victoria.
Despite the protesters' efforts, televised pictures showed the projection, which began about 20 minutes earlier than planned, remained clearly visible and displayed horses' racing colours and barrier numbers.
Racing NSW chief executive Peter V'landys took the decision to conduct the draw on Tuesday morning prior to the barrier draw function to circumvent any security risks as the fallout from use of the Opera House to promote the race continues.

"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".
Despite the numbers of beams coming from the ground, the strength of the imaging shone through.
Meanwhile, radio commentator Alan Jones, who last week launched into an aggressive argument with Sydney Opera House CEO Louise Herron over the ad, has apologised for his remarks.
