He is the sire of eight approved stallions, such  as champion sire Gribaldi (two of his sons won second reserve champion at Neumünster 2000 and 2001), premium sire Tolstoi (sire of Farinelli and Freudenfest-- both champions at the Trakehner stallion selection) and premium stallion Silvermoon (his son Cadeau was second reserve champion at Neumünster 2001).
Kostolany is also well known for successful daughters like Carara, Kandra, Chamonix, Herzlani and others, who are successful at broodmare shows, mare performance tests and national championships. On the occasion of the broodmare show Niedersachsen 2002, his daughters Vis-a-Vis and Kassiopeia were honored with the 1b-prize. Every year Kostolany has many champion foals. His offspring are successful in all kind of classes, from basic tests to Grand Prix Special (Shannon TSF, Showmaster, Silvermoon, Gribaldi, Pretty Woman, It's Lieschen). His daughter Amazing won the Youngster Challenge Cup of show jumping horses and won the title of best young show jumper at the Trakehner Bundesturnier twice.
