The decision to cancel the live barrier draw came hours after broadcaster Alan Jones publicly apologised for his on-air treatment of the Opera House chief executive.
"Racing NSW Stewards today have conducted the barrier draw for the 2018 The TAB Everest in preparation for this evening's barrier draw event", a Racing NSW release said.
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.
With 2GB breakfast host Alan Jones at the centre of the storm - for stridently advocating for the use of the Opera House to promote the Everest Horse Race and calling upon its CEO Louise Herron to be sacked - Goa has produced boards offering him free use of its "real billboards".
"Gave her a big talking to. you're allowed to project on there, that's the biggest billboard in Sydney, mate".
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.
"So to Louise and those people who've been offended, I apologise".
"I used some words in these programs about The Everest, and the Opera House, and Louise, which in hindsight I now most regret", he said this morning.
In a letter to the premier on Tuesday, the NSW Heritage Council said it was extremely disappointed with the government's decision and described the projection as "inappropriate".
When asked whether the promotion was legal, a spokesman for NSW Heritage Minister Gabrielle Upton pointed to the same exemptions they had been questioned over.
Scott Morrison weighed in on the controversy on Sunday saying beaming the draw onto the Opera House was a 'no-brainer'.
