"To avoid any perceived integrity risk, Racing NSW has determined that all betting on the 2018 The TAB Everest be suspended commencing at 12pm today (9 October 2018), until the final barriers have been publicly displayed this evening", Racing NSW said in a statement.

The 2GB talkback host has mounted a strenuous pro-racing campaign and on Friday called for Ms Herron to be sacked over her opposition to projecting an advertisement for the Everest race onto the iconic building. "Call Alan" onto the Opera House for all to see.
Broadcaster Alan Jones now says he regrets his comments.
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. The New South Wales premier overruled Opera House management to make sure Racing NSW were allowed to promote the Everest race through the projection of lights on to the side of the world heritage-listed building.
More than 265,000 people have signed a petition calling on the NSW government to reverse its decision to allow the advertisement.
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 team also projected their message onto the fronts of the NSW Art Gallery and NSW Parliament House.
