JACK Hale has finished third in the Stawell Gift, but the Hobart teen wasn’t happy with his effort, describing it as a “shocking run”.

Hale could not overcome history nor the handicapper and become the fourth Tasmanian in history to claim victory in the final of the Australia’s oldest and richest footrace.

The 17-year-old was the backmarker off 3.25m at Central Park in Western Victoria and despite looking threatening as he sought to make up the metres, the race drawcard could not catch race favourite Issac Dunmall (6.25m), from Queensland, who took out the 120m race in 12.17 seconds.

Hale finished third in 12.29sec with second favourite Tjimarri Sanderson-Milera (5.75m) second in 12.19sec.

“I would say it was a shocking run,” Hale told the Mercury.

“I did not execute it the way I wanted to, going in there with the goal to win and running the way I did was disappointing.

“It was the last 50, I was coming at them after the first 70m but then I started to tense up a bit.

“Definitely can address it, it’s quite difficult to prepare for it because I don’t really run over 120m but I can address it.”

After a fine run at the semi-final stage, eliminating one of the pre-race favourites Stuart Rooke in the fastest time of 12.22sec, Hale firmed as a hot favourite with the punters before the running of the $40,000 race who chose to ignore the historical form.

Only four runners, two off scratch, had won the prestigious race off a tighter handicap than Hale’s 3.25m.

His third place made him the second Tasmanian in three years to secure a podium finish in the Stawell Gift following Andrew Robinson’s win in 2013.

Hale will next compete at the Australian Open Track and Field Championships in Sydney, where he will take on Australia’s fastest men in the 100m.
