Gwarny was chief progenitor of Bairactar or.Ar. line in Poland. Used at Michalów Stud in 1958 - 1960 and 1967 -1974, and at Janów Podlaski Stud in 1964 - 1966 and 1974 - 1978.

Gwarny sired 11 stallions including five used in the Polish breeding program. The sons Endor (1965), Gedymin (1968) and Polonus (1968) were all three exported to the USA. Argo (1976) became Polish National Champion Stallion in 1986, he also sired as a chief sire at Janów Podlaski before being exported to Sweden in 1992. Balon (1979) was Swedish National Champion Stallion (1987) and Polish National Champion Stallion (2003), as well as Polish Reserve Champion Stallion (1994). Balon was used as a sire at Janów Podlaski and on lease to Blommeröd, Möllebacken and Slängsboda Arabian Studs 1986 - 1988, used at Michalów 1989 - 1990 and at Bialka Stud in 1991. Kirkor (1961) was exported to Canada, Salazar (1966) and Pasat (1978) was exported to GFR, Epirus (1968), Falat (1969) and Perkoz (1976) - Canadian Top Ten English Pleasure - was exported to the U.S.A.

Gwarny is known as a sire of very well-producing broodmares. Gwarny sired 34 mares: 15 of them exported to the US, including Familia (1971), sold at the Polish Ovation Sale, Scottsdale in 1985 for $265,000. Three of the daughters were sold to Great Britain - one of them was Etyka (1967), who was bought by Patricia Lindsay in 1971 and one to Canada, Sweden, Brazil and the Netherlands. In 1992 there was six of Gwarny's daughters left at Polish Studs, including Mila (1971), Pliszka (1973) and dam of Premia (1981) - Polish National Reserve Champion Mare and Palba - also international champion, Trema (1972), Arena (1977), Albania (1976), Engara (1977). Gwarny also sired the grey mare Cumparsita (1960) who gave birth to Cadyk (1973). Cadyk was Swedish National Champion Stallion in 1983.

Gwarny was the sire of the lovely Nidshem (1966). Cisawica, the beautiful flea-bitten grey dam of Nidshem was imported to Sweden from Poland in 1965. A few weeks later Nidshem (which means morning star in Arabic) was born. This filly was to become one of the most important broodmares in Sweden and founder of the well-known "N-family" of Papa's Arabians. The Poles consider Nidshem to be the most beautiful of all Gwarny daughters. Her show-record speaks for itself: In 1974 - placing second at the Swedish Nationals. Two years later at the Nationals, she was the class winner. Nidshem was not shown again until 1981 and 1982, winning Swedish National Champion Mare on both occasions. Nidshem is also the mother and grandmother of numerous champions such as Swedish Junior National Champion Stallion Nimbusz (1979, by Aladdin) and the truly classic mare Nianka (1980, by Figaro) as well as the wonderful Niebiosa (1985, by Probat). Nianka earned several wins and Regional Championships, and won the older mare class at the 1991 European Championships in Apache, Germany.
