In the final work ahead of her Sept. 3 debut at Del Mar, Customer Base went out in the company of stable companion Emerald Gold (War Front), herself an impressive maiden winner at the seaside oval who was tuning up for a start in the GI Del Mar Debutante, also on the 3rd. The duo was awarded the same time of 1:12 4/5, a bullet, and Customer Base was sent off at odds of 2-1, but not favored, in her debut. Held up near the tail of the field for the opening half, she switched out at the furlong grounds and was along late for a half-length score. Connections would have preferred remaining in California, but two races did not fill, and she was flown to the country's midsection for this entry-level allowance. Favored at 11-10, Customer Base rode the rails into the backstretch and was sixth, but in touch entering the turn. Committed to an inside run on the bend, she was shifted off the fence at the quarter pole and was six wide into the lane, but closed her final sixteenth in six seconds for a 1 1/2-length victory over Dream Pegasus (Fusaichi Pegasus). Sales history: $170,000 yrl '10 FTKJUL. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $69,000.
