A Brief History Of Superlative Stakes
The Superlative Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race for two-year-old thoroughbreds run over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres) at Newmarket Racecourse in early July.

Prior to 1991 the race was known as the Bernard van Cutsem Stakes, named in honour of the racehorse trainer Bernard van Cutsem. It was promoted from Listed to Group 3 class in 2003, and upgraded again to Group 2 status in 2006. The race has been sponsored by Weatherbys since 1996.
