The debate has raged since Friday, when broadcaster Alan Jones called for Ms Herron to be sacked in a fiery on-air interview, and became an argument about balancing the promotion of NSW against using the iconic building's sails for commercial purposes.

Ms Berejiklian said the Opera House policy had similarly been breached for the Ashes, Wallabies and a Samsung promotion.

A plan to project a racing advertisement on the famed sails of the Sydney Opera House has sparked controversy in Australia.

Betting has been suspended on The Everest until barriers for the 12 runners are revealed on Tuesday night. Prime Minister Scott Morrison backed the decision, saying: "Why not put it on the biggest billboard Sydney has?" The guidelines have always been stretched in the part and the commercialisation of the Opera House has always been there.

He then apologised to "Louise, and those people who have been offended".

He added that he did not believe his actions "qualify as those of a bully or a misogynist but there are clearly many people who do", and that he would be writing to Herron later in the day.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports two of Jones' business partners have horses in the race in question, and a horse owned by Jones himself tried out for but missed a spot.

Racing NSW chief executive Peter V'landys claimed he and other staff members had received death threats.

The apology comes as the Change-org petition pushing support for Herron and for the Opera House to remain "billboard free" now has more than 235,000 signatures and was delivered to NSW state parliament this morning.

'The thing is (Alan) Jones has a significant personal interest in this race succeeding not just this year but into the future, and so do his mates, ' Aly said.

The drama unfolded during the State Government's Responsible Gambling Awareness Week. Participants are encouraged to use light sources, such as torches and smartphones, to disrupt the advertising images.

Jones said on Tuesday he was receiving anonymous calls to his mobile phone "every minute".
