With the final bull dragged, whereas the matadors and their respective crews headed again to the vans, the quite a few followers who had come to the Plaza de San Agustín in Guadalix (Madrid) left the stands invaded by a sense of annoyance. The pleasure had was disappointment.

Despite the chilly and the very annoying wind that raged all through the afternoon, the plaza was nearly stuffed to the demand of the entire and mounted bull and the third of rods. One extra yr, that group of nameless heroes that type the Peña Tres Puyazos, achieved the not possible: arrange a good by and for the fan. And the folks responded. What failed this time was caste.

It is true that, to a better or lesser extent, the six horses fought within the Conde de la Corte-Palha problem carried out on horses. They took twenty blows in whole. Almost nothing. Without any being excessively courageous, there have been bulls that pushed at occasions. The drawback was that the little caste they’d inside ended up there, beneath the breastplate.

There have been noble bulls, like the primary one from Conde de la Corte, or the 2 from Palha; however all of them fell aside very badly within the final third. The second encore was sophisticated, an unsightly and twisted hat from the Count, who moved with out class and responded superbly, and the third, additionally from the legendary Extremaduran iron, a horned bully, with energy and extra genius than caste, who obtained concerned inside and got here out with the face up. The fifth, which took as much as 5 rods, stopped very quickly and ended up cracked.

Faced with the livestock disappointment, those that vindicated themselves have been Morenito de Aranda and Ángel Sánchez. The first primarily based on craft, intelligence and dedication, and the second because of a serene braveness and an impressive idea of bullfighting.

Morenito, very beneficiant with the bulls within the first third, endured together with his two opponents, at all times making an attempt to elongate the muletazos and left some element of his bullfighter character. Sánchez, for his half, at all times stood in his place and stole a bunch of notable naturals from the final one.

Sánchez Vara defined much less, who additionally carried out frankly poorly with the sword in each turns. The better of his efficiency, the third of banderillas that he starred in in comparison with the primary.
