Four-length maiden winner a first for son of Shamardal at stud
Sommerabend won four Group races during his racing career
Tudo Bem ran out an easy four-length winner of the opening juvenile maiden over 5½f at Dieppe on Thursday, becoming the first winner for Shamardal's son Sommerabend at stud.
Bred, owned and trained by Mathieu Boutin, Tudo Bem was kept up to his work throughout the contest but ultimately ran out a facile winner in the hands of Coralie Pacaut.
He also became the first winner out of the winning Dark Angel mare Boulba D'Alben, a half-sister to three minor stakes performers out of 5f Group 3 winner Wixon.
Raced from the age of three to seven, Sommerabend showed his best form over a mile, winning the Group 2 Prix du Muguet in his final season before his retirement to Haras de Saint Arnoult, where his fee was trimmed from €3,500 to €2,500 this year.
Tudo Bem also became the latest winner out of a daughter of Dark Angel, who is also responsible as damsire for the likes of Prix Morny runner-up Havana Grey and Listed scorer Hikmaa.
Dark Angel was also responsible for the second home, Primaravez, who was having her second start.
France Galop lists 43 two-year-olds, four of whom are raced, and 33 yearlings by Sommerabend. His yearlings have sold to a high of €45,000, while he had a colt sell for £32,000 at this year's Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale.
