GOLD Front owner Sue Olive says the Tick Tick Bloom colt the stud sold yesterday on day one at the Magic Millions sales has a work ethic combined with a magnetic personality.

The Gingin thoroughbred breeder said the colt sired by Invader was cheeky around the stables.

“He’s a typical little colt – thinks he’s 10ft tall and bullet-proof,’’ she said.

“But I think he’ll be an early runner and he takes all his work in his stride.’’

The September 2019-born colt was bought by Ascot trainer Trevor Andrews for $110,000.

Andrews said he liked the colt’s type when he viewed him up at the farm.

“There’s a lot of Snitzel about him and he’s out of a well-performed race mare with plenty of Black-type,’’ he said.

He said Invader was a new season sire but his progeny had sold well over east.

With his pedigree Andrews thought the colt would be a good 1400m-to-a-mile horse.

At the Swan Valley complex yesterday a Scenic Lodge colt by Universal Ruler from Royal Secret was bought by Parnham Racing Stables for $40,000.

The Muchea-based stud also sold a Snippetson and Pearlesque filly to Millfields Park for $200,000.
