Tom Pouliot's Jess Doin Time, a homebred daughter of Apollitical Jess trained by Jason Olmstead and the seventh-fastest qualifier, outran her 18-1 odds to win Sunday's Mystic Lake Northlands Futurity at Canterbury Park.

Ridden by Julian Serrano, Jess Doin Time covered 350 yards in :17.940 while defeating 5-2 favorite Miss Energy P by three-quarters of a length. The $61,488 winner's share of the $146,400 purse bumped the Minnesota-bred filly's earnings to $72,788.

Jess Doin Time is out of Lenas Rare Lady, a winning daughter of Rare Form. The filly has won two of her three starts, all at Canterbury Park.

"It's unbelievable," said Pouliot, a resident of Corcoran, Minnesota. "It feels totally different when you raise them."

Pouliot said he was encouraged to breed Lenas Rare Lady to Apollitical Jess by Olmstead. The successful matchmaking produced Jess Doin Time.

Maghelene finished third, 1 1/2 lengths behind Jess Doin Time, and was followed by Devins Project, fastest qualifier Mildred Didrickson, Cashair, Chicken Lips, Dashin My Lady, BHR Flashing Effort, and Shes Sizzling.
