Racing NSW stewards have suspended betting on The Everest after conducting the barrier draw in private on Tuesday morning.
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.
"Call Alan" onto the Opera House for all to see.
The Opera House did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but has previously directed Reuters to the state government.

Hundreds of protesters shine torches on Sydney Opera House in opposition to controversial advertising for a horse race.
At 7.40pm when the sails were first lit up, protesters lining the grounds around the building also began shining torches aimed towards the projection.
Meantime, Jones still got his way, the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is still Jones' puppet and Louise Herron is now a role-model to all Australians for standing up to this politically motivated fuckwits.
The government's decision came after a top radio "shock jock", Alan Jones, urged the Opera House's boss to resign or be sacked for objecting to the promotion.
This afternoon the Heritage Council of New South Wales delivered a damning letter directly to the Premier expressing its "extreme disappointment" with her decision to allow the advertising to go ahead.
'This is one of the biggest events of the year why not put it on the biggest billboard Sydney has, ' he said.
"I used some words in these programs about the Everest, and the Opera House, and Louise, which in hindsight I now most regret hearing, having heard the impact they've clearly had on some people", Mr Jones said on air.
Enter The Chaser, who in the early hours of Tuesday morning drove down to Sydney Harbour and projected Jones' phone number along with the words "Advertise Here".
