Opting to run as a "corpse bride", complete with a funereal black corset and sign bearing the inscription "Soon to be divorced", she was more than happy to celebrate the impending demise of her nuptials in Ballybrit.
The King of Ballybrit struck in the first race with Diplomat and took the third with Mustajeeb. Weld already looks set for another golden year at Ballybrit, to go with his nine winners from last year and his record breaking 17 in 2011. By the time we got to the 6.45pm race, bookies were looking nervous.
All of them were waiting for the arrival of Munster boys Mick Sherry and Tommy O'Donnell, who were apparently delayed on the way to the course.
Yeliz Tolga was really keeping her chin up. After finishing well back the field, she was now looking forward to formalising her divorce with a party.
Bookies take an early beating
"I've been down a few times but it always coincides with pre season. The first week has been tough so I'm quite sore, but it's good to be back in the routine," he said.

"I ran last year but I didn't do so well. I was a bit of a dark horse. This time I held back behind my boss and let them all out in front of me and then came up on the outside so it was great. It's been a fantastic day and hopefully we can all win a few pound," she said.

"I sent Paul a text last week and said I was still waiting for the invite. Eoin Reddan and a few of the lads were over for Nike Vapormax Black Flyknit it and said it was great so I wish him all the best," he said.

In aid of Special Olympics Ireland, a strong crosswind did not deter 30 brides, a sprinkling of bridesmaids, and even a divorcee, hurtling up the last furlong to take the first 'race' of the week. It wasn't without controversy, with a false start ending the early celebrations of one over eager racer. When it came down to it, Michelle Cawley, 32, from Sligo took the honours with an impressive late sprint for the line. Michelle, who works for Special Olympics Connacht and is a self described "serial bridesmaid", took part in the race last year and had clearly learned some strategy in the intervening 12 months.
Leinster stars Fergus McFadden and Sen Cronin were studying the form with Connacht players Andrew Browne and Brett Wilkinson.
"It'll be a bloodbath if he wins this. It's only one day in and we could already be looking at carnage. People just blind back Weld and it works every year," said Leon Blanche of Boylesports.
