Betting suspended on The Everest

The Opera House has previously been used to promote messages

More than 265,000 people have signed a petition protesting the use of the Opera House to promote the racing and gambling event.

Comedy crew The Chaser have out-Jonesed Alan Jones by projecting his phone number onto the sails of the Sydney Opera House.

He said he had no problems with horse racing being promoted, but "there are literally thousands of other places these ads can be put up".

It was the first time in 299 regular season and postseason starts that Price failed to strike out a batter. That may be a small sample, but it's impossible to ignore the success Sanchez has had when facing Price.


"It will be kept secure until it is released to the public on the Opera House tonight". "This shouldn't be allowed to happen again".

In the early evening, Sydneysiders were seen dancing and chanting profanities directed at 2GB broadcaster Alan Jones, whose on-air interview last week sparked the furore.

Controversy has raged ever since it emerged the Opera House was going to be used to help promote The Everest, which is billed as the world's richest turf race and is a massive drawcard for tourism in NSW.

But when Washington took the field, the defensive unit lacked the necessary discipline needed to stop Brees and company. Instead, they helped Brees pile up first-half yards with third-down penalties that extended two touchdown drives.


On Tuesday night, the barrier draw for The Everest is due to be projected on the shells of the Opera House from 8pm, alongside a planned protest on the foreshore.

Today a petition with 235,000 signatures calling on the NSW Government and Racing NSW to stop turning the Opera House into a "promotional billboard" was delivered to NSW State Parliament.

In the letter, Heritage Council chair Stephen Davies said the decision goes against existing management policy and may impact the UNESCO expectation for World Heritage sites.

Associate Professor Bronwyn Hayward, from New Zealand's University of Canterbury, is one of the lead authors of the IPCC report. It further stated that India is one of the countries which is at risk if the global average temperature breaches the 2℃ mark.


The apology came hours after The Chaser had taken matters into their own hands, with a stunt that saw them project what was "apparently" Jones' real phone number onto a number of Sydney landmarks including the Opera House.
