David Mora and Economista

David Mora and Economista Corrida de toros, March 14. Second corrida in the Fallas series. Five bulls from Alcurrucen (and one #5 from Ventorillo). The only ganaderia of the feria based on non-Domecq blood. Founded in 1950 by Francisco Ramírez Bernaldo de Quirós and bought by the Lozano brothers seventeen years later, it is now based on Carlos Nuñez cattle. Its colors are sky blue and black. Matadores: David Mora (Madrid in 1981). Fluorescent green and gold. Mora took his alternativa in 2006 in Borox (Toledo) with Alcurrucen bulls and with Enrique Ponce as his padrino. Alvaro Lorenzo, an upcoming young matador (Toledo, 1995; alternativa: Nimes, May 2016) in a pastel-blue suit with gold. Luis David Adame, (Aguascaliente, Mexico 1998; alternativa in Nimes, August 2016) younger brother of Joselito Adame who wore an indigo blue suit and gold. Luis David got seriously injured in Olivenza earlier this year but has recovered enough to appear this evening. The sky threatened with rain but cleared up nicely. The Lozano bulls were well presented had a general weight of 535 kilo’s but all but one lacked stamina for three tercios. Number three gave up all together and ended up defending himself. Mora’s castillian style of toreo is a very technical, an almost cold style which hardly leaves room for deeper emotions. It fitted well with his first bull. Although the animal stumbled...

Jesus Chover triumphs in Valencia ( spain )

Jesus Chover triumphs in Valencia Monday 12 March at 17.00. Novillada with picadores. Six black novillos from Fernando Peña from the province of Toledo. Divisa: sky blue and yellow. Not very strong, except for the first and fourth novillo. For the local novillero Jesus Chover, reappearing after his serious injury in this bullring in July 2017 (dark blue suit of lights with gold), Alejandro Gardel born in Madrid in 1998 (unrelated to the argentine king of tango and in a bone-white and gold suit) and Angel Téllez (bottle green and gold), a former pupil of the Escuela Taurina El Juli, who surprisingly triumphed in the Valencian plaza in October last year. Daytime weather was sunny, with strong wind blowing in from the Mediterranean which died down the moment the novillada started. If it hadn’t been for Engañoso, the first novillo for Jesus Chover or Fumador who came in in 4th place and if it hadn’t been for the support the Valencian public gave its local son, it would have been a dire evening.The 28-year-old local novillero who was badly injured in July 2017 by a Los Maños novillo that almost took his left arm, returned to the arena with confidence brimming. His two novillos were by far the best of the bunch. A 28-year-old novillero he may be, but under the guidance of Vicente Ruiz ‘El Soro’ he not...

Padilla, on his goodbye tour around the bullrings,

  Padilla, on his goodbye tour around the bullrings, David Fandilla El Fandi and Roman Collado Roman. Weather: windy after showers but dry during the corrida. Juan Jose Padilla (Jerez de la Frontera, 1973) cut his first ear as a novillero in 1989 when he was known as El Panaderito, The Little Baker Boy. He took his alternativa in Algeciras in 1994 with Pedro Castillo as his padrino and bulls from Benitez Cubero. The next year Carlos Escolar ‘Frascuelo’ confirmed him in Madrid with a bull from the Marquis of Albaserrada. As far as I know he never went out on shoulders in Las Ventas but did so once in Sevilla. In 2011 he was injured very seriously in Zaragoza losing his left eye. After a miraculous recovery he came back in March 2012 and is since known as El Pirata, due to the eye patch he wears in the bullring. Last year Fallas Padilla was again seriously injured by a bull from Fuente Ymbro. Recently he announced he will definitely retire at the end of the 2018 season. We will especially remember the fearless way he confronted his bulls and the courage he had when he returned to the bullring after his horrendous injury. Once upon a time, not too long ago, every feria would have a special evening of toreros-bandrillereros who would share the glory, exchange banderillas,...

the bulls in English

The Bulls in English It’s that time of the year again. March is upon us and with only a few days to go, the first of the much awaited festejos taurinos of Las Fallas de Valencia 2018, is about to get under way. Tauroimagenplus has asked me to preview the programme that SimonCasasProductions put together for this edition. It is something I fear because to preview a bullfight is almost impossible given the uncertain factors of a corrida de toros. Looking at the line-up for the coming feria and keeping in mind that the inclusion of local bullfighters always...
