ALL betting has been suspended for the world’s most lucrative horse race as fiery debate over its advertising on the Sydney Opera House rages on.

Racing NSW announced the drastic move citing “security risks” at the Everest race in Sydney.

The organisation also revealed the barrier draw had been conducted in confidence and the result would be kept secret until Tuesday evening, when the controversial imagery is planned to be projected onto the Opera House.
