The Listed Bendigo Cup is due to run at Bendigo Racecourse on Wednesday October 31, 2012.

Run over a distance of 2,200 metres, the 2012 Bendigo Cup is worth $100,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Bendigo Cup is open to horses of all ages and is run under quality handicap conditions.

Tanby became the new big thing in spring carnival news when he won the Bendigo Cup last year.

The five-year-old gelding  finished second in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes and Group 3 Geelong Cup prior to his Bendigo Cup win.

Tanby has won seven of his 16 race starts and has earned more than $350,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

He hasn’t had a run since placing 12th in a $70,000 Handicap at Flemington in February this year.
