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.

At 7.30pm yesterday, more than 1000 protesters switched on their phones and shone lights onto the Sydney Opera House in an attempt to wipe out the giant horse-racing advertisement being projected onto the building's iconic sails.

"You don't have a right to fence it off... if this can't be approved you should be sacked because you don't own the Opera House", Jones told Herron in the fiery interview.

Brisbane-based outdoor operator, Goa, has dived into the controversial debate over Racing NSW's upcoming use of the Opera House as a billboard.

Many were also were angry over Alan Jones involvement in the incident.

Luckily for Jones, as it turns out, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is a gutless Jones puppet can caved in immediately, overturning the actual documented rules of the Sydney Opera House so that Jones' pals could get their way.

Almost 3000 people are also expected to attend a protest at that time to disrupt the Everest projection with torches and mobile phone lights.

The change.org petition titled Defend our opera house: support Louise Herron, had passed 265,000 signatures by The Mandarin's Tuesday midday publication time.

"The Opera House case is a flashpoint, because it throws into broad daylight what normally happens in the dark", he added - namely, the fact that a huge amount of political influence in this country can be bought by powerful corporations, who many politicians end up working for after their political careers are done.

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.

Protesters had been planning to demonstrate at the Opera House tonight. The guidelines have always been stretched in the part and the commercialisation of the Opera House has always been there.
