Hugh Anderson, managing director of Godolphin UK and Dubai is doing his bit to help the world during Covid-19 pandemic by taking part in The Godolphin Winning Line Challenge to help raise money for local charities.
The Godolphin Winning Line is a virtual 28000-mile line connecting all of the racing operation's bases from Dubai to Japan, Australia, USA, Ireland, UK, France and back to Dubai.
Godolphin staff from around the world will run, walk, swim, cycle or crawl that distance for local charities.

"Hi everybody. So tomorrow is day one of The Godolphin Winning Line Challenge. Only 28,000 miles to connect all of us all around the world. It's a huge challenge," said Anderson.
"My contribution is 25 miles of cycling every week, 25 miles of running and 25 miles of walking my increasingly fit dogs. That's 75 miles a week over five weeks. And I lay that challenge down to John O'Mills and Jimmy Bell. And I've calculated if we all do it, that is enough mileage to get us from Dalham horse stud to Rome. It's a great cause, please get stuck in. Good luck," he added.
Earlier this month, their British trainer Charlie Appleby and his team at Moulton Paddocks, thanked the UK frontliners in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and appreciated their efforts during these unprecedented times.
In a short video message, Appleby, who was named International Trainer of the Year for the third straight year in 2018, thanked Britain's National Health Service.
