The concentrations of ascorbic acid and total protein in blood serum of 57 healthy race horses (17 males and 40 females) were observed. The results obtained were summarized as follows: 1) The mean value of ascorbic acid concentration was $0.44{\pm}0.16$ mg/100 ml (SD) ranging 0.20-0.92mg/100ml and sex difference was not significant. 2) The mean value of total protein concentration was $6.11{\pm}0.3$ g/170 ml(SD) ranging 5.6-7.0g/100 ml and their sex differences were significant(P<0.05); male $6.36{\pm}0.09$ (SE), female $6.13{\pm}0.06$ (SE). 3) Observation on the correlation between the total protein and ascorbic acid content (${\gamma}$=+0.3) and a liner repression equation (y=0.123x-0.31) were obtained.
