Longevity is no guarantee of success, however, as 13 of the 34 never tasted the glory of winning the race. McCoy is the only rider to successfully remove himself from the list after winning at the 15th attempt in Richard Johnson set a record of 21 failed attempts to win the race from —, having finished second twice, but is still competing.
The other 13 riders who never won or have not as yet won, having had more than 12 rides in the race are:. Peter Scudamore technically lined up for thirteen Grand Nationals without winning but the last of those was the void race of , which meant that he officially competed in twelve Nationals.
Many other well-known jockeys have failed to win the Grand National. Dick Francis also never won the Grand National in 8 attempts although he did lead over the last fence on Devon Loch in the race, only for the horse to collapse under him when well in front only 40 yards from the winning post.
Pitman's son Mark also led over the last fence, only to be pipped at the post when riding Garrison Savannah in David Dick luckily won the Grand National on E.
Since , any jockey making five or more clear rounds has been awarded the Aintree Clear Rounds Award.
Over the years, Aintree officials have worked in conjunction with animal welfare organisations to reduce the severity of some fences and to improve veterinary facilities.
In , a new veterinary surgery was constructed in the stable yard which has two large treatment boxes, an X-ray unit, video endoscopy, equine solarium, and sandpit facilities.
Further changes in set-up and procedure allow vets to treat horses more rapidly and in better surroundings. Those requiring more specialist care can be transported by specialist horse ambulances, under police escort, to the nearby Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital at the University of Liverpool at Leahurst.
A mobile on-course X-ray machine assists in the prompt diagnosis of leg injuries when horses are pulled up, and oxygen and water are available by the final fence and finishing post.
Additional vets are stationed at the pull-up area, finishing post, and in the surgery. Some of the National's most challenging fences have also been modified, while still preserving them as formidable obstacles.
After the Grand National , in which two horses died in incidents at Becher's Brook , Aintree began the most significant of its modifications to the course.
Other fences have also been reduced in height over the years, and the entry requirements for the race have been made stricter.
Screening at the Canal Turn now prevents horses from being able to see the sharp left turn and encourages jockeys to spread out along the fence, rather than take the tight left-side route.
These orange-coloured boards are positioned at the base of each fence and provide a clear ground line to assist horses in determining the base of the fence.
Parts of the course were widened in to allow runners to bypass fences if required. This was utilised for the first time during the race as casualties at fences 4 and 6 Becher's Brook resulted in marshals diverting the remaining contenders around those fences on the final lap.
Welfare groups have suggested a reduction in the size of the field currently limited to a maximum of 40 horses should be implemented.
Opponents point to previous unhappy experience with smaller fields such as only 29 runners at the Grand National , only 31 runners in , and a fatality each at the and Nationals despite smaller fields and the possible ramifications concerning the speed of such races in addition to recent course modifications part of the "speed kills" argument.
Some within the horseracing community, including those with notable achievements in the Grand National such as Ginger McCain and Bob Champion ,    have argued that the lowering of fences and the narrowing of ditches, primarily designed to increase horse safety, has had the adverse effect by encouraging the runners to race faster.
During the s and s, the Grand National saw a total of 12 horses die half of which were at Becher's Brook ; in the next year period from to , when modifications to the course were most significant, there were 17 equine fatalities.
The and races each yielded two deaths, including one each at Becher's Brook. In , when further changes were made to introduce a more flexible fence structure, there were no fatalities in the race itself although two horses died in run-up races over the same course.
In , the race sponsors John Smith's launched a poll to determine five personalities to be inducted into the inaugural Grand National Legends initiative.
They were: . A panel of experts also selected three additional legends: . In , nine additional legends were added: .
John Smith's also added five "people's legends" who were introduced on Liverpool Day, the first day of the Grand National meeting.
The five were: . A public vote announced at the Grand National saw five more additions to the Legends hall:.
