The Torrestrella run a fast time of 2min. 25 sec. with one runner receiving a goring in the Santo Domingo stretch but his condition is not serious. Five other runners were removed to hospital suffering from thraumatisms
The first Running of the Bulls with theTorrestrella bull-ranch was quite a clean running. There were some moments of tension and danger in the Santo Domingo stretch where one of the bulls charged at the runners. Some of the bulls fell at the corner of Estafeta and also on the final stretch leading into the bullring. Only five of the six bulls ran as one of them suffered an injury to its leg when the bulls were being brought up to the pens in Santo Domingo last night.
The bulls came out in a tight pack, but one of them was charging at runners from the first and it jabbed one runner with its horns on this stretch. The run lasted 2 min. 25 sec. While the three front bulls ran together over the whole course, two of them got separated and fell behind and created some danger for the runners.
