Welsh Strawbridge was a noted equestrian and his favorite horse was named River Breeze, they are shown here together.
River Breeze won sixteen Steeplechase races in the 1920’s. He died in 1941 and was buried on the grounds along with his companion, a dog named Pip.
"Uncle Welsh owned and rode racehorses....He had a fabulous horse named River Breeze who generally won, so the betting was always in his favor...."
The burial site is marked with a head stone and a statue of a thoroughbred at full gallop that was donated to HPHA by Joe and Marie Dillon.
