Anne Moller, the wife of Bjorn "Tarzan" Berglund, died recently as the result of skin cancer. She was 37. The couple resided in Sweden the past five years and have two children, Holly, 7, and Glenn, 3.

Berglund, one of the most popular figures around the racetrack in the 1990s, was nicknamed "Tarzan" by the late Swedish trainer Soren Landin because of his physique and strength. He spent 15 years as second-in-command for the Continental Farms Stable. Berglund was no small part of the stable's success in North America, which included nearly $40 million in purse money and wins in the Hambletonian, five Hambletonian Oaks, five Peter Haughtons, four Breeders Crowns and numerous divisional champs.

Berglund began his career in 1979 as a caretaker for the dynastic stable started by the trio of Jan Johnson, Hakan Wallner and Berndt Lindstedt, and rose to second in command for a barn that often numbered in excess of 80 horses. He received the 1993 Dick Baker Award from the U.S. Harness Writers Association for his contribution as a second trainer and invaluable assistant.

Berglund and Anne returned to Sweden in 2000 to raise their family and Berglund has since maintained a small public stable.

A memorial service will be held for Anne Thursday, June 9, at Hyby Gamla church in Klagerup, Sweden. Cards and donations for the Berglund children can be sent care of Ole Bach, 280 Cedarville Road, East Windsor, N.J. 08520.
