C. Frank Hopkins Sr., the proprietor of the 200-acre Elberton Hill Farm in Darlington, has been appointed to a one-year term on the Maryland Racing Commission by Gov. William Donald Schaefer.
Hopkins, 67, fills the vacancy left by the resignation of Margaret McManus, whose term was due to expire in June 1993.
A self-proclaimed proponent of "the little man" in racing, Hopkins said yesterday that he hopes he can help "get special consideration for people who breed and race their horses in Maryland."
He added, however, "I want to do a good job and represent the industry as a whole, not just one segment."
