Rodrigo Pessoa will no longer be the principal rider for Double H Farm. After an extremely successful partnership, Rodrigo will move on and Double H Farm will focus on other aspects of their business. “We have had a great relationship and friendship with Rodrigo and have enjoyed being able to support him,” said Double H Farm owner Hunter Harrison.

Pessoa stated, “I have learned a lot and been lucky enough to work with Hunter through this time. His experience as a leader and as a partner is a unique and special situation, and I'm extremely appreciative for what he has done for me. We will remain good friends and look back fondly on the great success that we have had together.” He continued, “Moving forward on good terms is really important to us. To that end, I will keep Let's Fly in my own string. I think that shows the good will and respect that we have for each other.”

2007 Pan American Games Individual Silver and Team Gold Medals - Rufus
2009 $500,000 Grand Prix of Charlotte Victory – HH Let's Fly

“Hunter is not just a good boss, he's a great boss,” Rodrigo concluded. “I know we will remain close and I will continue to consult with him.”

Harrison noted, “We were happy to be a part of Rodrigo's success in the past seven years and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.”
