The first of four races that make up the Lisbon bonus for the year 2022 took place tonight at Campo Pequeno.
In the square were the knights António Ribeiro Telles, João Salgueiro, António Maria Brito Paes, João Salgueiro da Costa, Joaquim Brito Paes and António Telles Filho.
The handles of a bullfight from the cattle ranch of António Raúl Brito Paes, were in charge of the Grupos de Forcados Amadores de Montemor and Lisbon.
Campo Pequeno was full, in the night of Alternativa by Joaquim Brito Paes.

In the delicate moment that bullfighting is going through, due to the loss of values, the successive attacks of the ‘against’ all this, and above all, by the contras ‘from here’, the race that marked the start of the Lisbon season was of major importance…

To know…

Campo Pequeno housing what it was born for – a bull run!

Small Field, full!

Campo Pequeno, stage of an alternative!

The first two premises do not constitute a doubt, however much they want to question them, and the third, corroborates the first two. There are those who want to live from and to bullfighting.

Wearing ‘blood of bull and gold‘ and obviously toasting his father and brother, Joaquim Brito Paes went out to the arena to deal with the first bull of his career, ‘Noitadas’, 582 kilos, collaborating qb.

Joaquim was fine and even the rains did not diminish in any way the merit of his performance, awarded with music after leaving the first superb short, with a very pronounced beat to the opposite python. The rest were within the same concept, in a complete and much applauded exhibition.

THE ALTERNATIVEof course, emotional and moving, received from the hands of her brother, António Maria Brito Paes.

Recovered the shift, handled the second, Antonio Ribeiro Telles.
António received, before performing, what was one of the biggest ovations of the night, which took place on the occasion of the commemoration of his 39th anniversary of alternative (cried with emotion…). Handled in crescendo, leaving after the regular long, short in the form of an artistic compendium. Superb!

João Salgueirothe second veteran in the cartel, handled the third one well, not leaving his credits in the hands of others, having left a long second of such a high level, that if he had played the music, no one would ‘disturb’… The music it would be heard after the first short, the first of many others with a good note, in a fight, in short, pleasant.

Antonio Maria Brito Paes he handled the room more discreetly, even though he excelled in regularity and accuracy in meetings and crimping.

Joao Salgueiro da Costa received the fifth in the order with great determination, dealing very short, this being the most striking and positive note of his performance, the way he played… truth to your luck.

Antonio Telles son closed with a golden key the good race, first of the allowance. It went well from the first moment in the arena, but it evolved over the course of the role and grew with it. Each short, a lesson in the rules of good manners in the art of bullfighting. Fantastic, with the audience standing up and cheering, a round performance.

The handles were on behalf of the renowned Groups of Amateur Forcados from Montemor and Lisbon.

To the faces of the bulls wearing the jackets of the Montemor Amateurswere: Vasco Carolina, Vasco Ponce and Jose Maria Vacas de Carvalhoat the first attempt.

On the front line Lisbon Amateurswere: Nuno Fitaseffective at first attempt; Daniel Batalha, at the first showy attempt, to travel alone in the face of the bull; and Duarte Miraat the fifth attempt.

A beautiful bullfight from the cattle ranch was dealt Antonio Raul Brito Paes, with an undeniable trapio, worthy of the most important bullring in Portuguese geography. In different behavior, but in general with mobility and lending some emotion to the celebration.

The show was directed by the Tauromáquica Technical Delegate, Lara Gregório de Oliveira, assisted by the veterinarian, Jorge Moreira da Silva, and a minute of silence was observed in memory of Carlos Serra, a former member of the capital’s pitchfork training.

In between, there was a jump to the arena of the ‘against this all’ and, in opposition, a beautiful toast from the Lisbon Group to all the politicians present there and who support bullfighting.
