Stars of the 2019 Bullfight Fair in Sanfermines
The Casa de Misericordia of Pamplona has ended the speculation regarding who would step onto the sand of the ring during Sanfermines… and which bulls they will face in this spectacular fight to the death.
For the first time, a ranch from Tarifa, Cádiz, La Palmosilla, will bring bulls to Pamplona, and also for the first time, Javier Marín from Navarra will debut in the ring on July 13. Also debuting as matadors in Pamplona are Pablo Aguado and Juan Leal.
The well-known Andrés Roca Rey from Peru will fight on July 10 against Jandilla bulls and on July 12 with bulls from the ranch Núñez del Cuvillo. Julián López “El Juli” ,always popular in Pamplona, will face bulls from Victoriano del Río on July 11. Antonio Ferrera will also share the ring on July 11 and Cayetano on July 12 with bulls from the Núñez del Cuvillo ranch.
Bull ranches signed contracts for Sanfermines 2019 with the Casa de Misericordia at the end of last year. The Jandilla bull ranch was the winner of the prize, “Bullfight Fair 2018” for bulls fought last year on July 13 by the matadors, Juan José Padilla, Cayetano and Andrés Roca Rey as well as Puerto de San Lorenzo, awarded last year the prize “Carriquiri” for the best bull of the Fair, named “Cuba” and fought on July 7, 2018 by Paco Ureña.
Returning to Pamplona for the 2019 Bullfight Fair of Sanfermines will be the following ranches: Miura, Victoriano del Río, Cebada Gago, José Escolar and Núñez del Cuvillo. The ranch from Navarra, Pincha, will again provide bulls for the “novillada” or fight with young bulls and the ranch for “rejones” or bulls to be fought on horseback is, again this year, El Capea.
