Albacete, Cotolengo festival to honor Damaso.

Albacete, Cotolengo festival to honor Damaso. Plaza de toros of Albacete, Sunday, May 13. 6 p.m. Charity corrida in favor of La Institución Benéfica Sagrado Corazón de Jesús de Albacete, better known as Cotolengo, a foundation for people with special needs. The poster that celebrated this 29th edition was especially emotional. Not only was it the first time without Dámaso González, its patron for all these years, it was also Albacete’s homage to an exceptional paisano and most favourite son who died in 2017. The luxury line-up of participating matadors was the following: Enrique Ponce, Miguel Ángel Perera, El Juli, Cayetano Rivera, Paco Ureña and Rubén Pinar. With bulls from Samuel Flores’ mother, Daniel Ruiz, Pedro Moya ‘El Capea’, Javier Vázquez, El Torero, Encinagrande and an eral from Sonia González for the alumno of the local escuela José Fernando Molina. This edition could only be described as a truly royal performance. Albacete’s bullring is a delightful arena which seats about 7000. Maybe it is a bit uncomfortable but every member of the public has a wonderful view of the cream colored ring. I had never been here before and I recommend it to everyone who is in the neighborhood. The local feria is in September. Only, make sure you don’t sit contra-barrera Sol. The setting sun literally blinds you and if you don’t bring anything to shield your eyes, you...

First class bullring, third class novillos.

First class bullring, third class novillos. Novillada with picadores. Saturday May 12, at the coso de Monleón, Valencia. Novillos from Gómez de Morales, new to this bullring, for the novilleros Christian Climent in blue and gold, Jorge Isiegas (night blue) and madrileñan Carlos Ochoa who was dressed in bright pink and gold. A warm evening and with half the plaza filled. Gómez de Morales’ ganaderia was established in 1999 and originally started out as a branch of the renowned Perez Tabernero family from Salamanca. However, in 2005 the Santa Colomas of don Alipio were exchanged for Atanasio Fernandez blood which in 2010, sadly, made way for the more commercial Juan Pedro Domecq bloodline. At the sorteo and subsequent enchiqueramiento, the novillos could best be described as nondescript black juanpedros, with a general weight of around 460 kilos and not exceptionally well armed (the only astifino animal went as a substitute…). That was at noon. At 9 p.m. when the last dead novillo left the arena, it had been the most boring, non-novillada I ever witnessed. Every drop of toro bravo blood was squashed out of these three-year olds. They either fell at the first touch of the picador’s steel or slid to their knees when the first banderilla was placed. These disgraceful animals should never have been brought to a first category plaza like Valencia’s. What we had to...

Prologue novillada with pics saturday May 12 at the coso de Monleon , Valencia ( Spain )

Prologue Novillada with pics, saturday May 12 at the coso de Monleón, Valencia. Novillos from Gómez de Morales, new to this bullring, for the novilleros Christian Climent, Jorge Isiegas and Carlos Ochoa. Gómez de Morales is a ganaderia that was established in 1999 and originally started out as a branch of the renowned Perez Tabernero family from Salamanca. However, in 2005 the Santa Colomas of don Alipio were exchanged for bulls with Atanasio Fernandez blood which in 2010, sadly, made way for the more commercial Juan Pedro Domecq bloodline. Twenty-five-year old Climent is already a veteran to this arena. In 2012 he took part in a novillada sin picadores, debuted with horses the following year and since then has been part of Valencia’s mundillo. He has appeared in its arena at least once a year but doesn’t seem to be willing, able or otherwise to take his alternativa. Cristian Climent (from El Puig) was once managed by Vicente Ruiz El Soro who taught him to kneel in front of the toril, how to place his banderillas and perform other taurine dellicacies. Jorge Isiegas is a madrileñan novillero who had the opportunity to prove himself in Valencia two years ago in a novillada with Los Maños novillos. When Jesús Chover as well as Angel Sanchez couldn’t continue because of injury, he had to take care of four novillos. To the surprise...

A sobrero from Parladé

A sobrero from Parladé The novillada sin picadores on March 10 saw six well presented Nazario Ibañez’ two-year-olds, although unequal in weight and horns. The local novillero Borja Collado surprised us with two good quality faenas which got him an ear of each of his opponents. The young Valencian was the first to leave through the Puerta Grande.  On the following evening Juan José Padilla said farewell to the Valencian afición but he failed to male an impact. Román had made it clear he is a young torero with great talent of improvisation and a remarkable presence in the arena. His performance was awarded with the ear of his first bull. He was injured in the estocada and didn’t come back. Padilla cut the ear of the sixth Jandilla bull that should have been toreared by the injured Román Collad ,El Fandi did not leave a lasting impression The first novillada with bulls from Fernando Peña made the Valencian novillero Jesus Chover the happiest torero in town. He got the best two bulls of the evening and although he should have been rewarded with the ear of his first novillo, he cut two from his second and went out through the Puerta Grande. It earned him the title ‘Novillero of the Feria’ The second novillada came from El Freixo, a ganaderia owned by El Juli. Even thought they looked...

La Concha Flamenca

La Concha Flamen Corrida de toros, 19 March, last of Las Fallas. Valencia ( Spain ) The raIn, that had been threatening all afternoon, finally started to fall on the moment the clarine and the drum announced the last corrida of the Feria de las Fallas. Six bulls from Victoriano del Rio waited patiently in the holding pens of the bullring. For Antonio Ferrera, Ginés Marin and the recently promoted venezuelan matador Jesus Enrique Colombo, who got injured here in october last year but filled the place of Román who, earlier this week fell victim to a Jandilla bull and was unable to fulfill today’s engagement. Antonio Ferrera wore purisima and gold, Ginés Marin was dressed in light grey and gold and Colombo had chosen a white suit with gold embroidery. Weight off the bulls: 538, 532, 510, 535, 527 and 516 kilos. Only a third of the seats were covered, making it the worst attendance ever of a corrida on the 19th of March, Day of Saint Joseph, patron saint of Valencia. By the time the third bull came into the arena, the raIn was coming down so heavily that the floor was soaked and puddles started to appear on the sand everywhere. In general terms Victoriano del Rio’s bulls were good for the toreros, they all went for the muleta well although if one or two had been...
