McRae was previously included in the BP Portrait Award in 1995–6, 1998 –2000 and 2009. In 1999 she was the winner of the BP Travel Award.

The portrait is of A.P. McCoy, the first jockey to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award and British Jump Jockey of the Year every year from 1996 to 2010. McRae requested the sittings after being inspired by McCoy’s Grand National win in 2010 at his fifteenth attempt.
