Of the consignment of bulls that Victoriano del Río despatched, none had the standing of a first-class bullring and truthful. And all six of them had been from Cinqueños, a few of them even very previous. But they didn’t present unhealthy intentions, they often used sticks, though there have been some, just like the fourth, that was utilized in a second entry. Dull, missing spark, strolling on the crutch, they didn’t supply difficulties, however these inherent to their lack of caste.

The darkish brown that opened the afternoon, plumpness, was a mannequin of meekness in rods. Three instances she received on the horse and 3 times she got here out like hell. Roca was inspired to make a kill for tafalleras, and Castella, the matador on obligation, responded with one other for chicuelinas. The French swordsman gave the demise of this bull to Enrique Ponce, a spectator on this event, and the preamble to what got here subsequent was some doubloons with bullfighting, to take the bull out of the third. The first two sequence with the best pointed as a result of the bull responded, however Victoriano needed to change arms and resist, as he stored his eye on the tables. Back on the best hand aspect it was not the identical. Castella's work and a few ultimate results, getting near the bull, didn’t obtain what the French swordsman was after.

The fourth on the horse had a sure type, though extra bravado than courageous. She received into quite a bit with him Castella. Up shut, consenting, however the considerably surly bull was not up for the duty. Meanwhile, amongst a lot mashing, the band didn’t cease circling La Concha Flamenca, not even stopping to disarm the bullfighter. Quite a lot of angle in Castella, with commendable endurance, though the bull as soon as ate his floor. Everything ended on the bullring aspect, the place tame bulls often die.

Second, an insignificant horn jumped out, protesting on its means out. He nullifies his presence in entrance, within the center and behind. Without class, additionally, for the crutch. Roca was inconsequential with him, regardless of the inverted circulars on the finish that attempted to justify a job earlier than the bull that by no means existed.

The fifth is extra open-minded, however as missing in substance as the remainder. Eliminated with out ache or glory within the first two thirds, Roca didn’t give it some thought and on his knees, on the best, he raised the curtain of the duty. The first half was extra about orthodoxy, whereas the ultimate fireworks had been a riot of boasts of all colours. The bull, with out class, on the tempo, but in addition very comfy, was virtually like a toy within the arms of a Roca King who imposed his will and completely dominated the state of affairs. Because of such lengthy work, he acquired a warning earlier than stepping into to kill and he was about to listen to the third; The highest rating was in bullfighting on the left hand, remoted, that too. But the job got here to fruition.

Pablo Aguado's first was additionally acquired with protests. Bull with out rennet that, if something, considerably coated his deficiencies on the face. But additionally an unpresentable bull. Aguado handled him with softness of cape and muleta, with the excellence of his idea, however all that lacked the emotionality that the presence of a bull provides appropriately. Bullfighting in a spherical, elegant, however of little attain to the individuals because of the dying assault of the animal. Everything occurred as if nothing had occurred.

The sixth appeared to have extra pleasure from the beginning, but it surely was a feint. He solely glided by with the primary blows of the crutches, solely to fall into inconsequential habits. Few particulars about Aguado on that bull, nothing extra. He even appeared to get bored quickly.


Bulls of Victoriano del Río, unequal and scarce in presence. They lacked caste generally and arrived on the crutch boring, with out saying something. They additionally tamed.
