Originally from opposite sides of the pond, Broussard and Rosie Hundley share a passion for breeding, raising and racing Thoroughbreds, a deep understanding of the Thoroughbred industry and its people, and a love of the outdoors. Together, they closely manage every aspect of Saxony Farm, from caring for the land to ensuring the well-being of the horses.
While growing up at Saxony Farm, Broussard watched and absorbed all aspects of farm life. He saw champions born and raised, witnessed record prices attained by horses representing the farm, and learned valuable lessons about farm management while experiencing the previous cycles of the industry.
Broussard worked on the farm and at the sales while he attended Sayre School, Transylvania University and the University of Kentucky. An accomplished rider, he played polo for 15 years. Broussard also gained industry experience in a number of Southern Hemisphere countries and brings this expertise to bear in his work at Saxony today.
In 1995 Broussard worked as assistant to trainer Peter Perkins, who with his wife, Diane, bred and raced horses in the name of their Wimborne Farm. After Peter’s untimely death in 1996, Broussard took out his trainer’s license and conditioned runners for Wimborne. Soon after, he won the 1996 Arlington Heights Oaks (G3) with Wimborne’s Cuando Puede.
From Norfolk, England, Rosie’s family has been involved in the Thoroughbred industry for many years. As a youngster she was a keen hunter, eventer and point-to-point rider. A growing interest in racing took her to Lambourn, England in 2001, where during her vacations she worked for trainers Nicky Henderson, Noel T. Chance and Hughie Morrison for the following 3 seasons. Rosie also spent time in Australia, working for polo player Adam Meally in 2001 and trainer Graeme Rogerson in 2004.
Rosie graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a degree in modern languages (French and Spanish) and literature. In between her studies, she worked for noted trainer Jessica Harrington in Ireland, consignor Ted Voute and at Shadwell Stud’s breaking and rehabilitation division both in England.
In 2006 Rosie received a Joss Collins Scholarship and arrived in Kentucky that year, where she worked for Wayne Sweezey at Darby Dan Farm for two years. She gained hands-on experience in every aspect of large-scale commercial Thoroughbred breeding and was exposed to all major North American sales.
Rosie joined Bluewater Sales in 2008 and served as sales director for a year and a half. Working closely with owner Meg Levy and Bluewater’s client base, she organized and coordinated all aspects of a sale.
