    FINNISH horsewoman Ada Massa has recorded a personal milestone.

    Moving to Australia to work for power couple Emma Stewart and Clayton Tonkin in 2017, Massa registered her first Aussie victory in Shepparton last night.

    In fact, it was Massa’s maiden triumph any part of the world!

    “I did the course to be driver back home in Finland, but never lodged the paper work or had a drive,” Massa said.

    “Then my mum saw an ad on Facebook for a job with Emma and Clayton, and knowing I wanted to work and travel abroad she showed it to me.

    “I wanted to work with horses outside of Finland and never really had a country in mind.

    “I’m glad I came here as I love Australia and have no plans of leaving.”

    In what was her ninth racing appearance, Massa partnered handy pacer Concealment to an eye-catching win.

    After being settled three-back in the running line from his outside of the second row draw, Concealment was taken three-wide without cover along the back straight.

    Sustaining a strong sprint the son of Art Major completed a three-metre win from Lenard Ess, with Stanbyme five-and-a-half metres away third.

    Rating 2:01.3 over 2190 metres, Concealment took his record to 13 wins and five placings from 32 starts for earnings of $92,247.

    “I’d never had anything to do with a pacer before I came to Australia, so to win my first race with a pacer is certainly unexpected,” Massa said.

    “To get my first win is a huge thrill and I can’t thank, Emma, Clayton and the owners enough for trusting me with the drive.”
